Looking to see if anyone went through this. Mentioned to my primary doctor that I had an annoying pain in my inner chest that stretched through to my collarbone ,clavicle on my right side and upper arm/shoulder. He pressed around and it was very tender. Told me he thought I had bicep tendenitis. Went to my ortho doctor he agreed and shot me up with a cortisone shot. He did it behind not in the tendons in front but upper shoulder in the back. Didnt want to risk rupturing the bicep tendon. 10 minutes later the pain was unreal.
The 4 area’s where I had mild pain ,the pain was 100 times worse. No pain anywhere other, no pain at the injection site. He told me its a steroid flare likely. But this has gone on for 8 days now. Didnt lift upper at all. Played hockey three times but took myself out of the last game as I developed horrible pain in the tricep when I reached for the puck. Every time anyone touched my arm/shoulder it was the worst. Would send pain radiating .
I cant any answers from anyone as to why after a shot the pain in the complained about area’s is way worse . I have had cortisone shots in other areas before with much success. Have mri set up for Wednesday.
