well yesterday i got an articular cortison injection it hurt like a SOB. its the one that goes directly into the joint. in my ankle. they froze my ankle which is the part that hurt the most and it hurt and burned for a good hour afterwards. i felt fine all last night after the pain went away. and then i woke up this morning in extreme pain. i cant even begin to explain how much it hurt. i went to the emergency room and they said i had gotten frost bite from the cold spray they used. it damaged my skin slightly but not too much. the ER doctors say i will be in excruciating pain over the next fews days and they gave me motrin 600mg and percoset 5/325 to take every 4-6 hours. Is this a normal thing that happens when you get a cortisone injection?? i know i might have to do this every 4-6 months so i was just wondering if it is something that happens alot. if anyone has ever had it done let me know.
