sort down sort up F  M  
 1  Inflammation, pain Intense pain @ injection site, extreme vertigo and dizziness to where I can't function, thrush, pain & burning in muscles & joints all over; insomnia, depression, anxiety, nausea, feel like I'm in a bubble. Unending flulike symptoms, fatigue, migraines, heart palpitations, BP gone crazy, wheezing. UPDATE: menstrual period now lasting 18 days, esophageal spasms. READ THE WARNINGS! All symptoms I have are in the package insert, but I wasn't warned and doctor denies them. I had a round of Kenalog several weeks before this recent round, thought it helped. The repeat of the injections hit immediately and HARD. Bad vertigo & pain, inability to function, and burning in the muscles I had the shots in for the purpose of STOPPING any inflammation. Burning and muscle spasms all over, actually. Migraines & pressure in the eyes, it is HORRIBLE. The symptoms are actually increasing the further I get from the shot. Doctor says this is impossible, but my pharmacist found all my sx easily, and several ER docs & my GP said this is quite common with steroid overload & that I must just ride it out. I got these shots to feel better, not slip into complete disability, even for a month or two. UPDATE: Now having to have multiple tests for adrenals and all hormones; on day 18 of a very heavy menstrual period with heavy clotting, it just will not stop & no way still to stop the symptoms that continue, muscle and tendon pain, esophageal spasms (1-2 per day) and heavy bleeding. Had to take a med to try and counter these symptoms and NOT happy about that, or the THOUSANDS spent trying to help the pain, run tests, get treatment for symptoms I never before had. Depression unlike anything imaginable, panic & irrational fear, inability to concentrate, FACIAL hair growth (!!). Anything that can wreak this level of havoc on the body shouldn't even be on the market! Terrified tendons could have been weakened to the point of damage beyond the pain alr F 38 53 days

 1  Arthritis on knee Leg muscle/fat atrophy, vein atrophy, collapsed vein in leg on to peroneal nerve. Nerve pain. Extreme heart palps. Poison Burning stinging itching After Ortho PA mis injected carelessly this poison escaped knee and traveled into vein causing chemical burn. Are soft tissue, collapsed vein. Vein now compressing leg nerve. Can't even walk up stairs. Losing thousands in pay wages. Leg went numb at work. Have limp. NO doctors know how to fix. No lawyer will take cause even though every doc says the shot caused and can't be fixed. Need a better lawyer. Need better doctors slso to fix. 45 1 years
 1  injection Horrible fat atrophy and hyperpigmentation along neck and jawline after kenalog 40 injections for what my Dr THOUGHT was scar tissue forming post face/necklift. Kenalog is extremly damaging and dangerous to healthy skin. My jawline looks like chunks of flesh have been cut out of it. Most Dr's do NOT warn of these side effects. This product should be taken OFF the market. I have read post after post of this happening to many people at the injection site of this product with no knowledge of, or warning from their doctors. It appears most Drs don't discuss this or know how to inject it. WHY is this product still on the market. It ruined my skin and messed up a 13,000 surgery. DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT!!! This product is POISON!!!!! Would like to file a lawsuit and take this off the market. F 52

 3  knee pain/bursitis Severe stomach pain period came on stayed on for six weeks, discoloration at injection site, headaches,urinating alot doctor said I had a uti.Back pain facial hair. F 51 1 days
 1  SI joint/back pain,hip pain Severe leg cramps, swelling in thighs and ankles, muscle pain, pain in knees, shin pain, racing heart, weakness,anxiety, period started even though I am in menopause. Clots and spotting for days. This is poison! I did research and found out this medicine causes a huge list of adverse reactions. Low potassium is only one. After weeks of excruciating leg muscle cramps I finally went to ER. Resting heart rate was 150. BP was 202 / 112 ! Blood test showed low potassium and sodium. ER doctor and nurse said they had seen many patients with this same reaction to corticosteriods- kenalog. Unfortunately they said Kenalog is long-acting and don't know how long it will take to leave my system . Gave prescription of potassium, Lasix for swelling, and Voltaren for inflammation. Feel much better after only one day of these meds. ER nurse said not to go back to PM doctor who gave the Kenalog injections because he will not admit the side effects were from this medicine. I pray there will be no permanent damage. Do not do have kenalog injections !!! You will regret it . It has cost me months of leave from work, a tremendous amount of more pain and suffering than the original minor back pain ( 2 MRI' s and bone scan all fine) . Not to mention the host of doctor bills piling up . I am furious. F 49 2 months

 1  Severe allergies Primary care dr TAMARA LIEBERMAN IN PHOENIX AZ gave me this shot AFTER I told her I had recently had terrible side effects from newly tried nasacort and have been having. Allergic reactions to several drugs and foods etc the past year. Got shot then ten mins later got weird tickling coughing in back of throat for about 5 minutes. The next day felt great! And I could actually smell things again and eyes weren't puffy anymore. Then first couple nights had weird feeling upon laying down to sleep followed by ten or so days of shortness of breath insomnia debilitating depression palpitations etc that got so bad I had to roll fire to my house. Fire guys Terrified my 7 year old daughter tested me for everything but said all vitals were 100% but suggested I go to ER because something was definitely wrong with me they just didn't know what. They said it probably wasn't the kenalog because I didn't have a rash.....so spent 7 hours in severe distress in ER WHERE THEY RAN All possible tests plus brain MRI etc. Again all came back normal even my pulse and blood oxygen levels were great. ER doc said if it was kenalog I would have to wait the approx 8 weeks for it to run its course....returned to incompetent primary care doc for other reasons and brought with me the printed version of FDA website list of adverse reactions because I couldn't speak due to constant breathlessness and didn't have the energy to convince the idiot that the symptoms I've never experienced until after the injection F 43 1 days

 5  Crohn's Disease, Joint Pain Mild anxiety, bloating, headache, extremely tired day of injection, a little moody This has been a Miracle drug for myself as I have a horrible sensitivity to meds! Doctors kept giving me stuff that was making me super sick & tons off different daily pills! I then went to my family doctor and cried about what I'm going through and how sick i was! He at that time put me on Kenalog!!! I haven't looked back! I can say my Crohn's at this time is under control!!! Yay! I will deal with side effects to have my life back!!! F 36 2 years
 5  Asthma and severe allergies Facial redness, tachycardia only the first night. Thank gosh for Kenalog, my asthma is crazy in springtime AZ....I am so used to mouth breathing since my sinuses are so clogged, eyes reddened, another benefit is I have less IBS type symptoms and almost zero migraines. As a nurse, I hate taking meds, but this is a steroid, yes, but my reduction of symptoms and meds needed on a daily basis is AMAZING! Even less age related pain in my joints, back and feet... F 52

 1  Bulging discs in lower back I had one injection for lower back pain after suffering from 3 bulging discs i was told to expect a flare up of pain & then to be pain free for at least 6 months this wasn't the case i had no flare up after but i was only pain free for 3 weeks. What i wasn't told though was that my periods would be so badly messed up i bled from december 2 days after the injection until february i then missed march & have had light spotting all through april & may its a nightmare when you are trying to conceive aswell!!

 1  Severe allergies Severe anxiety, palpitations, menstrual cramping, headache, shortness of breath, depression. I had just finished taking 5 days worth of prednisone (60 mg) a day for a "asthma cough." My doctor already knew I hated steroids and the way they make me feel but I couldn't stop coughing and wanted it to stop. Then my allergist basically talked me into getting the kenalog shot saying it was nothing like prednisone. Although I was hesitant I ended up doing it and am so upset with myself that I did. Two days after the shot I ended up in the ER with a 159/118 blood pressure reading and 120 pulse. F 26 1 days

 1  Cervical Epidural in Neck C5-C6 PLEASE READ...I was told the possibility of side effects from using Kenalog for a cervical epidural was zero. HUGE MISTAKE on my part to have this done. I have very horrible pain so I went through with it. I'm 30 and have always had a normal period. I started bleeding 2 days after the injection and bled for 3 solid months..yes, 3 months! I noticed various size clots as well. I have been extremely tired since the injection and hungry. I also have grown facial hair (so mad about this one).....I am so upset other this injection. It has caused permanent damange that can not be changed. PLEASE do not let Drs use this on you. F 30 1 days

 1  right knee pain I don't even know where to begin. I've had cortisone injections in my knee years ago with no side effects. This was my first kenalog injection I have ever received. The doctor did not warn me about the possibility of any side effects. I asked him and he said as long as I was healthy I would be ok. I felt like a million bucks after receiving the injection. I felt like I could do anything. Then I got my period 1/20 and it lasted until 2/13. And I had clots of all sizes, then just spotting. I had severe anxiety that mimicked heart attack symptoms, feeling of despair and a level of depression that I didn't know was humanly possible. Aches and pains everywhere, horrible muscle spasms in my left foot, tremors, blurry and dimmed vision, adrenal rush, ear popping, eye pressure problems, head pressure problems, sensitivity to medications I have never had problems with previously, cysts on my right ovary, and I also discovered that I have a fatty liver which I never had before. Bleeding gums, strange and painful sensations in my head and ears, back pain, worsening of knee pain, new joint pain, GI issues and the list goes on. I have been to 3 different hospitals in 6 weeks apx 21 times. Most MDs refuse to admit that this is from 1 kenalog injection but luckily I have cone across a few older doctors who have the experience to tell me it is likely that my problems are from this shot and that I should list it as a medical allergy. I am having some improvement aside from still hav F 36 1 days

Also, increase of preventricular contractions which are stronger than prior to the shot and frequent cramps in both feet. Called the doctor who said that heavy cycles like this aren't caused by this drug. Just irregular periods.

 1  Allergies Thin skin, would get little 'blood blisters' if I even bumped my arms, my dog could lay open my skin with a gentle swipe of her paw/claws. Constant bruises. Huge pits in both hips. I had one injection that hurt so bad that I still have pain (it was over a year ago). The pits are so deep and hurt. I've gotten even thinner hair, and have lost about 25 pounds since I stopped getting the shots. Fast forming/degenerating cataracts. I took these shots years ago for allergies and noticed that they also helped relieve the inflammation in all my joints, and with my degenerative disc disease, I'd feel a relief of the pain that I have everyday. I started taking the shots again when my allergies were really bad. This time around, I started seeing the really thin skin, but my doctor kept saying it couldn't be the shots. When I stopped the shots, my skin (mostly on my arms) don't bleed like they did over every little bump, but I still get the 'blood dots'. I'm going in for cataracts that formed quickly (in less than 7 months). I'd really like to see if there is some way to fix these pits in my hips. They hurt, and I've literally got no butt left. I've lost about 25 lbs in the last 4-6 months since I stopped getting the shots. F 56 2 years

 1  Cervical Pain Heart palpitations, low blood pressure, pupil dilation for extended periods of time, leg cramps, night sweats, extreme migraine, moon face, thinning skin, distended abdomen, facial hair growth, severe hair loss on head, fatigue, anxiety, arms and legs atrophied, seizures I was give an injection for cervical pain after an accident. Within 5 days I was in the ER feeling like I got shot in the head. After 9 days, I was diagnosed with migraines and discharged. I continued to worsen and could not get any answers as to why "Not the Kenalog" was all I heard. Finally, three months after the injection, three hospitalizations later an Endocrinologist diagnosed me with Exogenous Cushings Syndrome as a result of the injection. My initial symptoms persisted for well over a year. Today I suffer from partial and gran-mal seizures. This drug has ruined my life. I am no longer able to function as a mother or employee. I am 36 and feel like someone in their 80's. Do not take this drug. It is not worth the risk. F 36 1 days

Started my period 4 days late on 11/25 and it's 12/21 and I still have my period with heavy bleeding, cramping, depression, IBS flare ups. I specifically asked my doctor were there any side effects and he said no. When I called back complaining about prolonged periods he suddenly remembered it was a side effect for women. This has shattered my life and I warn you not to take it. Deal with the pain or try alternative meds. I am so depressed, tired and irritable from such a messed up cycle.

 1  spinal stenosis insomnia, blurry vision, eye pain, lack of concentration, depression, constant menstrual bleeding for 8 months, skin thinning/easily bruising, digestive problems, cramping everywhere, hair loss. all continuing 8 months after injections. To those doctors who claim to have never heard of serious long-term side effects caused by particulate steroids including Kenalog, this is total BS. The documentation is out these, both anecdotal accounts from countless suffering patients and medical papers. Problem is the corticosteroid industry is so massively lucrative, those involved - injection doctors, manufacturers - are part of a cover-up that pretends these drugs are low-risk, essentially safe. It's criminal. For more reviews: http://orthopedics.about.com/b/2008/10/11/side-effects-of-cortisone-shots.htm F 40

In 2012 the FDA and the drug manufacturer said NOT to use in epidural shots. The doctors are using this off label. Had I known this I would never ever had this poison put in me.

 1  Severe allergies Heavy menstrual flow, large clots, cramps. Ended my last period on 5/16 (for seven days), started again yesterday, 5/23. Started having cramps in my foot after shot, they usually last about 10 minutes, not something I had before. My doctor told me the one side effect would be that it might bring my period down a day or two, that I could deal with. To go from a normal four day period with a normal flow to a seven day, heavy flow is not normal, to have it happen again a week later is not acceptable. For women, I'd think twice about taking this shot and ask your doctor is there is an alternative. F 41

An added bonus is that two years ago when I had the shot for my eczema I had severe pain from plantar fasciitis. A few days after the shot all the pain from the plantar fasciitis was gone. I have an appointment tomorrow. I will get my fourth annual shot for eczema because it is back. The plantar fasciitis has not returned. The kenalog injection has given me back my life. F 63 3 times

 1  pulled muscle in neck indentation of right hip, pain, focus problems, depression, and blurred vision 2 days ago I noticed a large dent on my right buttock/hip from 1 injection I had 2 months ago for a pulled muscle in my neck. I have noticed increased focus problems and depression/anxiety but I just thought it was from stress from work and home. Now that the dent appeared along with pain at the injection site and after doing a lot of research, it is ALL related to the Kenalog. I am so frustrated and would have never had the medicine if I was notified of the risks first. F 34 1 days

 1  spine injection for back pain Pain all over, insomnia, menstrual irregularities, hair loss, weight gain, dizziness - all persist 6 months after injection. This is a very potent drug w/many potentially serious (even life threatening) side effects. A doctor recently told me that corticosteroids cause more side effects than any other medication. The 11.13.12 reviewer who seems to consider this a miracle drug and says "most of the comments I read are nonsense," is incredibly uninformed and sounds like a rep. for Bristol-Myers, Squibb, the manufacturer. Corticosteroids can successful reduce pain for many people, but many others suffer long-term, debilitating side effects. F 35 1 days
