cortisone injection

Hi group,
I had a cortisone injection into a trigger point or my spot where it hurts and I keep getting reinjured (nervous system is oversensitized) and I'm deconditioned. How long does it take to work completely and how long will it last. My problem is chronic pain and inflammation. If I take Flexeril it works in about a week and is good for 3 weeks and that is it (but I can't it anymore due to an arrythmia), If I take Ibupropin it goes away if I take it 3 times a day plus one tylenol after a week or two it really helps. But that hurts my stomach. The other NSAIDs don't work for me. Anyway, I have myofascial pain syndrome (MRI, neg and bone scan and HIP xrys negative). So I'm hoping this will knock the pain signaling down. Anyone have an experience or info they want to share?
thanks,

Hi there!

The effect usually starts within 1-5 days and may last 2-4 weeks or more.
Hope this information helps.

Take care!

Thank you very much for responding. I guess it didn't work for me this time.
