Hey !!

Are you having any infection before or like a cold ? If you feel unsure it's never wrong to call the doc and ask. Better be sure then go and wonder.
Hope you feel better soon.

I had a series of these injections 5 years ago.   By 10 AM the day after the 3rd injection, my knees were both so swollen I could hardly walk.  My OS had me tested for rheumatoid arthritis (came out negative) and put me on a steroid pack for about 10 days.  Since it's been 5 years, I don't remember if I had fever.  He also asked me if I had any allergies to chicken or chicken products (no), so he never determined what it was.

That being said, I do believe the injections actually helped my knees for several months, but I won't risk it again.
