I had my first ever corticosteroid injections in my neck on thursday and immediately after i woke up from the anesthesia i was crying in pain. My neck was swollen and bruised. I could not sleep that night or eat and i was throwing up all night. Today is saturday and i still have bately eaten i am extremely tired and the pain has been so severe no amount of pain medication has helped. I also just noticed i am running a fever. This is ridiculous and the doctors do not think its a big deal. My neck and head pain is now worse then before and i canceled all of my future shots. I have also noticed extreme mood swings. I am so angry frustrated and i am just an emotional wreck still, has anyone experineced this as well? Is a fever a sign i should go to the emergency room? Could this mean i am alergic to the steroids or is my body just having a bad reaction. The doctor told me i should be all better a day after but three days after i can still barely move my neck. I feel like i am being stabbed with a screw driver and ice and or heating pad is not helping either.
