Can I get a Cortizone shot

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Cortizone shot.Yes, I have and my appointment is not until September I was referred to them in October of last year. I’m taking Dilaudid and Vistaril

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No, just my knee and both shoulders.

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

Every time I move you can hear bone on bone when I sit down it literally takes me 5 minuets to get up. And my hands and knees are swellen. Nothing makes it better at at all.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
