I have arthiritis in my foot and normally don't have high blood pressure.
Yes, Cortisone can cause high blood pressure.
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
