I had a hydrocortisone injection last friday in my heel for

Resolved Question:

I had a hydrocortisone injection last friday in my heel for plantar fasciitis, I had pain for a couple of days then it wore of to about 50% reduction. But physically I feel so rough now is it bad timing with a virus? I have an umbilical hernia and IBS also, and since the injection I have got a bloated tummy -whether I eat or not . So I contacted my doctor and told her I was feeling a lot of pressure on my bladder but there was no urgency for the toilet all the time and no other associated symptoms.
So is it a reaction to the injection -if so how long will it last. I have GAD and Depression which does not help the mater I know this but just want to know - be reassured that its ok.
Many Thanks XXXXX

It may all be due to infection.

I did a little research and found that some people have experienced what I have been -ie flushes and racing heart also and the palpitations have got stronger too, Yes I do suffer witgh anxiety but this discomfort is a little alien to me as I have not felt this before and wondered whether is my hernia?

Customer :

Its not intense pain but it feels what is best as being pregnant but no fear of that I must say
