I received shot in my hip on 8/29 and have slept only 2 hrs, a nite since then. I cannot even work now, job is very physical. Am nervous, shaky,whole body twitches. Finally decided to take Dr. advice and take Xanax last nite ( only 1/2 pill) It did calm me down and help me rest, but now feel out of it, and still shaky. How long does this anxiety, nervousness last? This was my 1st shot. Also am afraid to drive much. Never really took any med but aleve. Just want to know how long these effects typically last.Also, don't have much appetite, just nervous eating. All my doctors tell me they have never seen this happen before. ( I really don't believe them) Also, should I go to cardiologist or neurologist ? ( having some chest pain and numbness in left arm) I don't want to take much of the Xanax, says it may be addictive, and don't need more side effects. Help

Could you be more specific about what the shot was for? Was it for arthritis? A trigger point injection? Everyone reacts differently to different meds. The xanax will help you to relax for sure & probably help you sleep. You will not get addicted unless you are on them for a long time my friend. I had that shot in my hip , actually 8 at one time for trigger point injection, & it put me down for 3 weeks, but I have really bad problems with bad back, sciatica, etc... I wouldn't think you should be having this much trouble. The shot is usually given to alleviate pain, and is usually given with an anestetic so you should have had immediate relief, & maybe some soreness later. If you are having chest pain & left arm numbness go to the ER immediately. If you do not have anyone to drive you, call 911. These are signs of a heart attack. It could be angina pain, which is not as serious, but do not take a chance...

I called the manufacture of the steroid shot/ injection I received. They said yes, anexity, depression, fatigue, sleep issues and more can result as side effect of steroid injections. They also said, they did not know how long it would last. My dr also said it could not happen. I would like that answer also. Hope you are better
