I have been getting these shots for Fibromyalgia. I have had to stop anti-inflammatories due to bleeding in my stomach. I have had relief as soon as 12 hours after injection. Its the best relief!!

I received a shot for an allergic reaction back in February 2013. Now, I have a half dollar size indent in my left butt cheek at the injection area... my rear end is DISAPPEARING - this is horrible and scary and I have panic attacks thinking about what else this horrible drug is doing to my body. Had I know this is what they were going to use, I would have never agreed to it!

Its due to it shrinking the fat cells. If the nurse pulls the needle out and a trail of the steroid is leaked thru to the surface this will occur. Make sure the z track it. But to all those effected by this, they come back ... Show Full Comment
