    ive got semi-major knee problems and have been avoiding the issue for sometime(I HATE NEEDLES!) well we have had a couple really low pressure systems move through and it basically feels like someone is jamming an ice pick in my knee anyways so just how bad are they, are they terribly expencive and any other personal experiances? these darn low pressure systems are almost as effective at waking me up in the midde of the night as my darn sugar glider.

    No cortizone shots are for pain,they inject in in the place it hurts.My dad got his hand crushed in a bull dozer track that he was working on,anyway he had a cortizone shot after he recovered from the surgery(month or two)And he said it hurt more than the pain from the injury(imagine getting injections in your knuckles).I feel for you rattler!

    actually its both. its used as a cream for itching ect and its also injected in to joints for cronic pain, usually arthritis but for various other reasons such as what happened to Jerry's dad

    yeah they hurt alot but it's worth it. it helps with the pain. the few times i had one it left a bruise. if you don't have insurance they can be somewhat expensive.

    If youve got a long term knee problem then go to the doctors and ask them for advice, I really wouldnt try doing anything myself as it just might damage it more

    I have had few in my shoulder, the first few times they sting and burn more then standard shots. But after you get a few you get used to it. If the pain is bad enough that you want the shot, the pain from the shot will not bother you.
