 1  Knee Operation, Psoriatic Arthritis Insomnia, high anxiety, depression. While it definitely helped with inflammation associated with knee surgery, I definitely would prefer the swollen knee in comparison to the depression I have been experiencing. M 51 1 weeks

 1  knee pain after trauma Initially rapid heartbeat and insomia. After one week 4 pound weight gain. After 6 weeks 6.5 pound weight gain, puffy face, bloat belly, redistribution of fat to mid-section. I was a 100 pound fit woman who hiked 15 miles a week. I fell in a parking lot on flexed knees. I saw a sports doctor who talked me into bi-lateral injections of what I now know was Celestone into my knees (12 mg into each knee). This was a massive dose especially for a 100 pound woman. I was assured none of the steroid is absorbed systemically but later learned this was a lie (the doctor apparently needed the fee due to Covid-19 shutdowns and not seeing patients.) Seven weeks later my appearance has completely changed. I have gained 6.5 pounds. The 6.5 is all in my belly as the steroid causes not only weight gain but fat redistribution. I now have a bloated belly with rolls of fat - I had no belly fat before. My face is puffy and I have developed fat under my chin. I can't fit into any of my clothes. This is a nightmare and it appears there is no remedy. F 1 days

 1  Hip pain, possible displacement Migraine headache for 2 days. Even my teeth hurt. Facial swelling, flushed cheeks and neck. Obviously, I had an allergic reaction, so I went back the following day and received injections for pain and nausea. The pain injection didn't help, so I was given hydrocodone and am better today. Still have minor pain behind my left eye. F 66 1 days

 1  Hand fracture For one day I felt amazing then everything went downhill fast. Ended up in ER with bradycardia and weakness. Nausea, the runs, vertigo terribly bad. Ear pressure and no need to eat more than a piece of toast Been three weeks and I am not able to leave my house! Do NOT accept this medicine as an aide in your healing. This has been the worst 3 weeks (and how long to go??) of my life! I was fine before this. F 38 1 days

 1  Given a shot to arthritic knee About 5 days after receiving the shot to my knee, I had horrible diarrhea for 2 weeks. Went to ER and also have gastro appt. This was not worth having for what it caused. They give these shots too liberally without telling you possible side effect F 70

 1  Upper respiratory Rapid Heart Rate of 120-160 beats per minute for a week. tingling into my head and spine down arms. ER visit. Will never take shot again. Knew a lady who died from one. Thinking age (41) had an effect with this shot . Maybe related to hormones in women too. I was on a cycle and maybe potassium was low too. Had taken it before with little problems. F 45 1 days

 1  Treated by dr for pneuomia I was given an injection mix celestone 12 mm & rocephin 5mm the next day I took pill avelox 400mg as directed by dr. I have lost the feeling in my right arm my shoulder and right side of my face, my fingers have feeling, I was taken to the E/R per request from my doctor and had a stroke. I am not sure if the injection that was given to me by the doctors office was the casue of this stroke but I was a healthy 55 man active and no health issues....perhaps this could have cause my illness but I would advise for anyone that might be given celestone to do more research on this medicine.

 1  injection in back hives all over my body everyday for the past 5 weeks. I had celestone injected in my back and now I break out in hives everyday, it's been 5 weeks. Allergist says you can't be allergic to cortisone but it's an anti-inflammatory and I'm allergic to anti-inflammatorys. How long does it stay in your system. I can't stand the itching and swelling anymore. F 59 1 days
