This is my second steroid shot in the cervical spine. I had one exactly a month before. The first one hurt very bad for 1 day, very bad! But then got better after 1 day and helped to get arm movement and pain down for 5 days only. So got this shot two days ago and I'm in extreme pain. From the neck to my arm pit to the fore arm. I can't move my neck a lot and no way can I look down because of the intense pain. I'm at a total loss with this pain. This is my 5th spinal steroid shot ( in all areas of the spine) and have never had this type of reaction. Also have a headache. Why is this and what do I do? I did notice this time also that when the gave me the shot my BP spiked up a lot for me. 124/72 to 157/97 but came down about 30 min after the shot. Was also very flushed yesterday, but think that's normal, but for the first time ever with steroids. I have had a LOT of steroids before from having Lupus. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
