Cortizone Injections: Good or bad?

Posted by Amy on 11/24/98
I found out yesterday that I have a heel spur in each foot. At that time, the doctor told me that my only option would be to have a cortizone injection, which would last for up to a year. I had one in one heel. (and I am in quite a bit of pain today...) My doctor told me to come back in a couple of weeks to have a shot in the other heel. I am looking for any information on side effects, other alternatives, etc.
Thanks! 11:20:44
