2 days ago I got a steroid shot for bronchitis and the site still hurts. Couple of years ago I had a bad reaction to a steroid and it caused a dimple or dent in my buttocks. This time around after j got the injection I tried to massage the spot (it really hurt) and put heat on it. Should I worry I'll get another dent?
I got lidocaine shots three of them in my lower spine last Tuesday. Mine has not helped me one bit, in fact my back hurts worse! I have had those shots too... for my breathing and also in my spine...
As for ur dent I never heard of it in the 1st place so I don't knows. I hope u get to feeling lots better... love hugs and prays!
It's not unusual for a steroid injection site to be sore for a few days. I wouldn't rub it as that's just likely to irritate it. I should think that ice may be more useful than heat to help alleviate the soreness. An OTC medicine, like ibuprofen or Tylenol, would likely also be helpful. Hope this helps.
