Q. I received a corticosteroid injection in my left knne th A.M. Knee is all stiff & swollen. Is this normal?
A. actually you might have already had an arthritis in your knee before, then your doctor injected you with a corticosteroid into the affected joint. usually you will feel better (less pain) in your affected joint. if the symptoms don't improve then I suggest you to go see your specialist for further advise and treatment.More discussions about adrenocorticosteroid
