Cortisone Shots – possible adverse reactions?

Patient: Good Afternoon – I recently received a cortisone shot, along with some other medications, injected in the facet joints of the Thoracic at the T7-T6 area. I’m experiencing some headaches, above the nose and between the eyes, as well as sensitivity in the back. Could I be suffering a reaction, and if so, how serious is this? I’m also fatigued but having trouble sleeping – as well as irritable.

 

 

Symptoms: Headache, soreness, fatigue, sleeplessness
