    anyone had these shots??I was given one today in left sholder blade for pain in the neck, shoulder and severe arm pain for 2 months. Its been 5 hrs and I feel ALOT better, altho the cortisol has me wide awake. ( a small price to pay). Was wondering how long it helped with the pain?? Im keeping my fingers crossed?? Thanks for the imput. Jana'

    & they have helped. I need another one.

    I think they last about 2-3 months--depends on your system.

    The shot of cortisone and lido. can last several months but also can wear off quickly. I have had several. Good luck!
