Hi Everybody,Been a long time since I have been on,I got a shot in my knee this morning. The pain is so bad in my leg I can hardly stand it,starts in my butt cheek and goes down the leg till about mid-calf:( I got an ijection 3 months ago in the same knee. It did NOT hurt like this am wondering if anybody has an answer for me?? I take strong narcotics for my back after 8 Back surgeries. That is not touching the pain!!! Thank you in advance for any insight you can give me. My old name on here was sunshine!!

My understanding is that it is normal to have so much pain on the day of the injection, and even a few days afterwards. It is also normal to react to injections differently each time. If it is that bad you may want to consider calling the doctor who did this procedure asap.

I am presuming you had a shot in your knee because you have osteoarthritis. You may also want to post this on the WebMD Osteoarthritis Community here:

I pray you find pain relief soon.
