I wrote a little while back about my shoulder bursitis. I had the cortisone injection with no affect whatsoever. The Dr said I’m the only one she knows of for it not have done something. So I’m now on a course of prednisolone. I think I’m feeling less pain, I hope it works! Anyone else have a failed cortisone injection?

  • Definitely not alone with the failed injection. Depends on so much and they have to get the right spot. Hope you have some more luck now. If not though there are still options just keep yourself surrounded with professionals you trust. A good physio can usually tell you what other specialists in your area are good. Good luck.



  • Me, and I know of others. They’re not always effective.



  • Can’t wait to see some answers. MoMs are usually pretty helpful. Any info on failed cortisone injection and also from people who have any success/failure on the prednisolone would be much appreciated. Am getting pretty frustrated by the constant pain
