I had an injection of steroids in my left TMJ joint this past friday to help manage arthritis pain. I am still on a high dose of oral prednisone also. I know the injection is supposed to stay in the joint, but i wondering if it has gotten into my system adding to the overall dose. I am having some worrisome symptoms; my neck is swollen & thick, & feels uncomfortable. Has anyone else had both these treatments at the same time & had a similar problem?
