Hi Dr Bland,

I was diagnosed with Carpel on Monday 26th June and was given a steroid injection into both wrists, last night and today I have got really hot arms especially in the front of my arms by my elbows and just wanted to know if these are normal side effects.

Thank You.


We have had similar sorts of things reported for a few days after injection occasionally, though a red face is commoner than hot arms. If it is related to the injections and not something coincidental then I would expect it to settle in a few days. JB
