possible synvisc allergy
I just had what may be an allergic reaction to Synvisc.  This is my third time getting the injections.   The second shots in a series of 3 for my knees.   About 9 hours after my injections, one in each knee, my left knee swelled up causing extreme pain and discomfort.   After calling my doc. and starting on steroids the swelling quickly came down.    Here's what I don't understand why only one knee reacted?     And I am willing to suffer some discomfort for the relief I got from the other series.     Any thoughts.

Hello!

Avoid heavy physical activity or prolonged use of the affected joint (such as jogging, tennis) within 48 hours following the injection.

If the local minor allergic reactions subside with a mild steroid or anti histamines you can repeat the injection.

Discuss with your orthopedician and weigh the advantages over disadvantages before you take your next series.

Take care!
