Steroid flare after knee injection

A number of injuries causing pain in back of knee stems from athletic activity. For instance, one can pull a hamstring muscle via a sudden stretch of the muscle fibers of the hamstring. Generally, a “pulled hamstring” refers to a strain to one of the three muscles of the hamstring. Failing to stretch or warm up, tired or imbalanced muscles, inadequate footwear or a prior injury can contribute to a sudden injury, or this hamstring pain behind the knee can develop gradually over time due to overuse. Check out our Hamstring Support Shorts , a great solution for hamstring pain.

Pain after a corticosteroid injection is not the norm, but it’s not abnormal either. I can’t speak to your situation, but I can say that occasionally patients will have what’s called “post injection flare” where the pain is worse for 2-3 days after the injection. I would tell patients to put ice on the area and as long as it’s not red, swollen or with discharge at the injection site, sit on it for a couple days to see if it resolves. If it’s not any better after 2-3 days, then come into the office. And just so you know, it does NOT mean the injection did or did not work correctly, and it does not matter which technique was used to get the steroid into the knee joint.

Just bought the Flex-N-Go and I’m trying your exercises. I’ve been down all the avenues you have with my patellar tendonitis; physical therapy, hot and cold packs, massage, and PRP (which cost me a ton!). The success rate of surgery is low so I opted out of that. Thanks for posting this information. I have high hopes for these exercises and will let you know how it goes. Also, check out the Rumble Roller. I discovered it on this website http://-knee-/injuries/patellar-tendonitis-knee-tendonitis/ along with some great exercises for strengthening your legs.

I have a torn meniscus , and arthritis in my knee so I had a cortisone injection yesterday, the 27 of July. The injection site was sore, but not anything I couldn't handle. I did however have a headache all night, couldn't sleep, and my blood pressure was high. I take medicines for high blood pressure , but it didn't help much. I felt achy all over, and had hot flashes so bad that I had to have a fan blowing directly on me all night. Today I feel somewhat better. Knee isn't as sore, blood pressure is ok, and I am not as hot as I was last night. I did take a nap today, and felt like eating. Headache is slight, and less pain in my knee. Not sure if I will have another shot or not because of the side effects, but depends on how much I can endure with the pain in my knee.
