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.

The caudal approach to the epidural space involves the use of a Tuohy needle, an intravenous catheter, or a hypodermic needle to puncture the sacrococcygeal membrane . Injecting local anaesthetic at this level can result in analgesia and/or anaesthesia of the perineum and groin areas. The caudal epidural technique is often used in infants and children undergoing surgery involving the groin, pelvis or lower extremities. In this population, caudal epidural analgesia is usually combined with general anaesthesia since most children do not tolerate surgery when regional anaesthesia is employed as the sole modality.
