Headache after steroid injection

I got a headache in the evening after having a steroid injection in the morning.  This also happened to me when I got a steroid injection a little over a year ago.  The headache is quite severe and I normally do not ever get headaches because I have high blood pressure and I take atenolol.   I've inquired about the side effects of a steroid injection and once I did see that high blood pressure can be affected.  Any answers?

Hi,
Corticosteroids (cortisone-like medicines) are used to provide relief for inflamed areas of the body. They lessen swelling, redness, itching, and allergic reactions. They are often used as part of the treatment for a number of different diseases, such as severe allergies or skin problems, asthma, or arthritis.
Typical mineralocorticoid side effects are hypertension (abnormally high blood pressure), hypokalemia (low potassium levels in the blood), hypernatremia (high sodium levels in the blood) without causing peripheral edema, metabolic alkalosis and connective tissue weakness.

High BP can cause the head ache you are having especially since you already have BP problems.
