Can cortisone shot cause increased BP and heart rate?
Can a cortisone shot cause your blood pressure to go up and heart rate to increase my blood pressure is usually around 119/78 and heart rate rarely goes over 90. I am on beta blockers and lisinopril. The Ortho said that the cortisone shot will not cause this side effects. But I was fine until about 6 hours after the shot, when I started getting all these side effects. Also flushing of the face and headaches.
