Hey Rebecca, I don’t have experience receiving cortisone shots, but I’ve given them before (knees) I can’t comment thoroughly on the pain at the moment of injection, but I can say most patients don’t “jump off the bed” in pain.
After the first day, nearly everyone is incredibly glad they made the decision. Most people have significant pain relief for anywhere from 3 months to a year. Subsequent injections usually last a shorter length of time than the first, but how much shorter is quite variable.
