Coming down from steroid shot or something

Jun 07, 2017 11:20 AM

Ive been having elbow pain so I went to Dr and she gave me the big shot in the butt And mobic. I felt great the next day but today i feel like ive been up all night. Veru groggy and light headed. Inalso to restoril to sleep and that could also be why I feel so badly. Yesterday was very emotionally stressed so I think it must be a combo of it all .

What medication did she give you? Usually a steroid injection is given on the site of pain. Other medications like pain meds are given in large body muscles such as the butt. Some people can have reactions like you describe. Maybe take a hot bath and a nap
