 :-[ Hello everyone, I had a cortozone injection for my knee pain 2 days ago and have been having major hot flashes since then, I was at costco and had to leave I was sweating like a pig and afraid I would faint! last night I was in front of my fan with an ice pack on my head. Even now my face is hot to the touch and bright red. I had an injection 13 months ago and this didn't happen. I called my doctor but he left on vacation. I'm  really am wondering what the heck is going on. help!

Sounds like you are having a there a walkin clinic you could go to or call need to do flashes are no fun and usually a sign of something not quite right

 I did not have a reaction with that shot , it sounds like you need to call your GP and if not one call Pharmacy for suggestion and if it gets worse go to ER or walk in. Try some ice chips to cool your insides, check your tempature. Any itching or hives? I would not take this lightly. I have had same thing with morphine today after op and thankfully I was there and had to have a shot to counter react the reaction. I hope you get this under control, never being safe is bad.

I'm no expert, but I am a nurse.  This sounds like a very serious allergic reaction.  Get professional help (emergency room, if necessary) NOW.
