side effects for supartz and synvisc injections to knee

Holy cow.  I had this injection 4 days ago.  The injection didnt hurt anything like a cortozone shot.  I didnt even need numbing.  The problem is I have had every side effect in the entire world.  I have been tired, shaking, numbness in hands and my knee hurts like holy hell in the spot where they nailed me.  I dont think i was allergic to bird feathers, but maybe I was?  I have the worst stress headache feeling headache. I have a tens unit for the pain.  Once the unit is off the pain starts back up.  I had SUPARTZ.  How long do these side effects last for?

Its a different pain than the arthritis..  am i alone?

Hello!

The most important thing for two days after you take an injection is to avoid any strenuous or weight bearing activity that lasts longer than 1 hour. The side effects should decrease in couple of days.

The common side effects with viscosupplementation are pain around the site of injection and joint pain and head aches.

If you have allergic reactions and hives with injection of supartz then you need to take anti histamines and with these side effects avoid supartz and try other preparations of hyaluronic acid in the future.

Take care!

Its weird that they would cause joint pain as that is the entire reason ive had the shots...  I made the mistake of going to work and standing on a wood floor for 8 hours the next day.  Did I do permanent damage>?
