watch it for a day. if worse see your doctor
Discomfort in abdomen excessive saliva, nausia and belching. Why and how to treat? Had cortisone injection to shoulder 4 days ago. Already on PPI for gastritis
Seems like indigestion or stomach cramps. Avoid non veg foods. Consult your doctor for a prescription of anti spasmodic medication.

Hi. The cortisone will only show up on the T2 sections of the MRI and not the T1. So you may still proceed with the MRI
