I have had approx. 6 cortisone injections into my lumbar spine for L1-L 5 degeneration & Sciatica I am not experiencing severe weight gain and bloating my nurse anes. claims this is not from the cortisone but I never had this reaction when I was treated with non steroidal injection for the seven years previous to my move to NH. The nurse anes. also claimed there were no such things as non-steroidal injections. I'm changing pain practices because of this but I stuck with all this bloat and weight. How do I relieve it and how long does it take for this side effect to resolve itself???
