Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

One can have an allergy to almost anything but its something very unusual for a person to have allergy to cortisone.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Cortisone and similar drugs are used when someone has an allergy.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Although possible but it would be something rare.

Customer:

but should I go ahead and have it?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes you should go ahead

Customer:

what could happen my husband does not like the idea of me dying

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Nothing would happen

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Relax

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I mean you can have an injection.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Its not something dangerous.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You will be fine

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Cortisone injection is required for your tendinitis.

Customer:

I don't know what to do

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Whats the symptom that is bothering you the most?

Customer:

I have pain 24/7 and find it hard to walk

Dr. Shahzad MD :

In that case cortisone injection is very necessary for you. Cortisone is an excellent drug that is used to reduce inflammation.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So I personally think that you should have this injection to help with your symptoms.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Its very safe and used in millions of patients all over the world.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I have never seen or heard anyone having an allergy to this.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Its only very rare indeed.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So you can rest assured that you will be okay.

Customer:

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

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Before getting the cortisone injection you can have a test dose to see if you have allergy or not.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So you can request for a test dose in the skin.

Customer:

oh that is a better idea thank you

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You are most welcome
