While not long lasting, the injections for knee pain were successful in releaving most of the pain for to 5-6 weeks promoting better mobility. A good temp solution. Dr. Injected both hips. This is the second time for me. Because of frequent use side effects, I only have this done once or twice a year.

I received this subacromial injection for rotator cuff tendinitis and periscapular pain that has persisted despite having my torn labrum surgically repaired. I felt some relief from the burning muscle pain for about a day. About a week later I started having unusual bouts of high energy and increased irritability. I also started spotting for a full week before my usual menstrual cycle, and have continued to have disturbances to my cycle. I didn't mind having more energy, but the menstrual disturbances have been frustrating. After about 3 weeks, the energy and irritability had mostly subsided As for the shoulder, it's been about a month since I had the injection, and I can't really say that this treatment has helped significantly. It certainly has not helped enough for me to want to do this again. In general, I tend to be more sensitive to drugs, so keep that in mind when deciding on this treatment.
