Horrible reaction to Kenalog 40. Menstrual bleeding for 8 months straight, severe insomnia and depression, extreme weight loss, hair loss, cramping/pain all over my body. As many others have experienced, most doctors denied any connection between side effects and the drug and others said side effects are extremely rare and they've never seen them before. Seriously?!

I suffer from greater trochanteric bursitis syndrome of my right hip, which I have had for years and finally am treating it. before the shot, I went to physical therapy for four weeks, which only aggravated the bursa. due to interaction with another one of my meds, I asked the dr to only give me 50% of the dose scheduled. it didn't really hurt going in, but for the next 36 hours, I had a la ...

I have a cervical epidural at C5-C6. It did nothing for the pain from the compressed nerve, but has wreaked havoc on my body. At first there was flushing, increased appetite, headache and insomnia. Now the headache will not go away, my dizziness has increased, my periods are PAINFUL and irregular and I have bad leg cramps in both legs.

After 12 years of medication, acupunture, yoga, gluten free, etc etc etc this injection was the ONLY thing to help with my chronic pain. Four days after the painless shot I wake up feeling full of life and pain free. This does not last more than a couple of weeks, but saves me when when the weather changes or the monsoons come in (I live in AZ). I have had two injections 4 months apart with NO ...

Once a year for three years I received a Kenalog shot for severe allergies, the allergies are in check during the height of the pollen season, but I have noticed a divot in my hip where the fat and muscle are GONE! This drug destroys all muscle and fatty tissue at injection site, NOT GOOD!! I have also begun to realize that the hip issues I am experiencing are coming from the Kenalog! I am a r ...
