I've never heard of it doing so, nor is it listed as a common side effect of the injections. But as with all medications, new and differing reactions show up all the time as they're reported. The fever could possibly have been your reaction to the injection, or it could have merely been a coincidence. I suggest you report it to your Dr before having your next injection and get his opinion. If it happens again, it should be reported. Your Dr, or his staff, will know how to do so. Since these injections can prove to be very helpful in relieving chronic knee pain for a lot of people, I hope for your sake it was just a coincidence.
