    Supartz injections
    lynnlea43 posted:
    I had my first injection 5 days ago and the pain is worse than before the shot. I expected it to fade after a few days but it is with me 24/7. I am not able to sleep and sitting is uncomfortable. The pain is less when I stand. My doctor is impossible to reach so have not had answers as to whether this is normal and how long this pain will last. My 2nd shot is Monday and I am thinking of stopping.. I preferred the pain I had before. Is this prolonged pain normal and how long does it last? I had had similar injection in right knee several years who and this did not happen but I think the drug was different.
