Patient : Can the pain caused by Cortisone Flare be experienced away from the injection point?
Due to inflammation and pain related to my right Rotator Cuff, I received a Cortisone injection in the back of my shoulder.
Within 24 hours I had pain in the front of my shoulder.
72 hours later I still have the pain and less mobility in the shoulder than I had before the injection.
Is this Cortisone flare or not related?
Thank you for your thoughts on this.
