anesthetic injections for TTS

Posted by Rachel on 9/28/04 at 17:23 (160654)

My podiatrist wants to do an injection of an anesthetic to help diasgnose possible TTS. He also mentioned a cortisone injection.

I am only 27, am I too young to have this done? Are there any possible complications from these injections?

Thanks for your input

the injection is not a bad idea but consider an NCV, nerve conduction velocity test.
