Recently got a steroid injection in my shoulder to relive pain.

I have been to many doctors who have not been able to identify what is causing the pain in my shoulder. This morning I got a steroid injection. The area where I got the injection is pretty sore right now. I was wonder if anyone has had a steroid injection before and if it helped their pain. How long did it take for the soreness of the injection to go away? I want to make sure that the pain I am feeling is just from the needle and recently being injected and not my regular pain.

Rach1234 ,I had Medial Branch Block injections twice in my neck and upper back. The first injection did not help but made me sore for about 4-5 days , but the second injection I saw results. I had the nerves that were causing so much pain burned a week ago though so now I’m waiting 1 more week to see if any of the procedures helped and I want need pain meds for a while
