Patient : My husband I recently stayed in a hotel where we were awakened by bed bugs. My husband suffered 100 bites. He saw our dermatologist who gave him a steroid shot for the itching. Now he has joint pain in his upper and lower back, shoulders, and joints. This has been going on for about 2 weeks. Could either the bedbugs or shot have caused this, and what should we do about it?
