  • Never missed or had a late period in my life. Received 2 injections of depo medrol into joint of great toe, each was 1cc. Trying to figure out if this is a side effect or if I'm pregnant. Period was due 4 days ago.

  • 17 year old daughter had a depo-medrol shot in right foot, after an hour of receiving shot she got a spasm that went from her foot all the way to her lower back, and has had the backache and spasm now for 3 days. Doctor told me that the shot had nothing to do with it.... I beg to differ!!! my daughter was in so much pain that I was steps away from the ER. she is now on a muscle relaxer and vicodin.
