I have arthiritis in my foot and normally don't have high blood pressure.
Yes, Cortisone can cause high blood pressure.
Not only can the chemical makeup of the shot cause high blood pressure. But having a shot in the foot can definately cause severe pain which causes your blood pressure to go up.
I have received numerous cortisone shots for arthristis and have not had high blood pressure as an adverse effect. But, that doesn't mean it will not happen. Just getting a shot might cause my blood pressure to go up. I hate them. Especially painfull ones like cortisone shots. I am sorry for that. I have to get one soon in my thumb and am not looking forward to it... kimmie1
