Think carefully before Cortisone Shots

Sue on 11/14/98
Cortisone shots help some people. I know someone who had the series of three shots, wears othotics and is doing fine--pain free.

However, I had only one set of shots and am convinced that they made me worse. I would NEVER have them again.

If you decide to have the shots make sure you go to a good doc who is highly recommended and knows where to put the needle. My doc asked me where the pain was and put the needle in there!!!!!!

Sounds like acupunture might be a better first choice. I'm going to try that next.
