Bad reaction to knee injections and a question
Saturday, July 28, 2018
Tuesday I had bilateral knee shots. Synvisc-One® (hylan G-F 20). They are supposed to lubricate and cushion my knees to improve their functioning. The last set worked wonders.
This time my knees and the surrounding tissue became hot and swollen. There was a lot of pain
and involuntary muscle spasms. I normally do not use any assistive devices, but even with over the counter meds, ice packs, massage anti inflammatory capsules, and foods I am having to use a walker.
My question is have any of you had these shots and these type of reactions and what helped?
