In the last few years I have had the new experience of trigger finger + cortisone injections. Now I have had trigger finger three times. The first time I had it, was in my thumb (that was probably 5 years ago.) Today, I just had another cortisone injection in my ring finger for trigger finger. Unfortunately I had a cortisone injection in the same finger about 6 months ago. I was told you can get a max of 4 shots per finger in your lifetime.
I guess I’m writing because the whole trigger finger thing freaks me out!
I start worrying about getting it in other fingers, having to have surgery… and there are a lot of fingers!
I was told that if surgery is needed, then it is a permanent fix. So I suppose even though that doesn’t sound fun, knowing that it is fixable is good.
I almost don’t want to ask for people’s stories with trigger finger (like I said, cause I’m kind of freaked out about it!) but am still curious to know what your experience has been like.
Also wondering about blood sugars after the shot? I’m my searching of the forum last night, I saw some people experienced highs after the shot. I was cautioned about this by the doctor, but I have not experienced anything extreme - just have been running a little high since yesterday afternoon when I got the injection.
