Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
One can have an allergy to almost anything but its something very unusual for a person to have allergy to cortisone.
Cortisone and similar drugs are used when someone has an allergy.
Although possible but it would be something rare.
but should I go ahead and have it?
Yes you should go ahead
what could happen my husband does not like the idea of me dying
Nothing would happen
I mean you can have an injection.
Its not something dangerous.
You will be fine
Cortisone injection is required for your tendinitis.
I don't know what to do
Whats the symptom that is bothering you the most?
I have pain 24/7 and find it hard to walk
In that case cortisone injection is very necessary for you. Cortisone is an excellent drug that is used to reduce inflammation.
So I personally think that you should have this injection to help with your symptoms.
Its very safe and used in millions of patients all over the world.
I have never seen or heard anyone having an allergy to this.
Its only very rare indeed.
So you can rest assured that you will be okay.
I had one years ago and had an allergy to it I was in hospital at time and had to have a strong hydrochloride tablets and other meds
Before getting the cortisone injection you can have a test dose to see if you have allergy or not.
So you can request for a test dose in the skin.
oh that is a better idea thank you
