  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • within minutes of a kenalog injection in the left buttocks, pain from sight of injection began up lower back and down leg. did not get out of bed the following day. went to work and 4 hours later taken to ER for left side numbness and tingling. released after CT scan returned following afternoon with left side hemi-paresis with slight cheek numbness also. after 4 days of mri's, mrv's and $40,000 later they had no clue why. after 3 months the neurologist is also stumped. They deny the possibility it had something to do with the injection.
