    Update for Michigan. It has been 3 weeks since the shot now.I seem to be feeling a little better, but not 100%. I am not sure if the side effects are leaving or it is the Ativan I had to be put on to help me sleep at night doing it. I have not had as much muscle cramping and stomach pain like before. I do still feel hazy and tired but that also may be from the Ativan. I am just eager to get this p ... Show Full Comment

    Got a shot of Kenalog a week ago to help with my allergies.Life has been miserable every since. I have been to the ER and my personal physician because I keep having back spasms and uncontrolable shaking. It is literally taking over my life. I called the doctor and told him about my side effects and he told me that he has "almost never" heard of such a reaction to this shot. To make thin ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    Received an injection of Kenalog to take care of my hives, cough, etc. resulting from combination cold/allergies. Haven't noticed much improvement, on day 4 and still have hives that come and go throughout the day, cough is gradually getting better. Was told should notice results at about day 2, but doesn't seem to be helping me much.
