Can a cortisone shot trigger a migraine?

My 14 year old daughter received cortisone injections in her shin to help reduce chronic inflammation (shin splints). About 24 hours later she started to have a headache which worsened over a period of several days. She had some nausea and inability to concentrate and a severe headache. Sounds like a migraine, except that the pain was in the back top of her head. She never has headaches and was wondering if it could have been from a reaction to the cortisone.

There's a lot of side effects you can get from steroids. Look the type up and see what the side effects are, and meanwhile tell her dr.
