I had a cortizone injection in March for the first time ever in my right thigh. Day 2 was especially painful. I think it lasted roughly 3 months or so.
I felt like the pain was significantly decreased and I wasn’t shifting around as much. But, I did find that by not shifting, I had created the start of these sores under my legs and that was a bit concerning. I’d never had that before. I can tell that the pain is coming directly from the spine compressing and I can see a difference when I’ve gone to physio and when I’ve missed a week. The neurologist concluded that (for me) cortizone was really just masking problems, and intense exercise physio would probably be the best solution for.
Botox is new to me!
