Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Cortisone can raise the pressure and sugar.
Nothing to worry – from a single dose, as in your case.

Anxiety is less likely – rather euphoria and sense of well being is common!
It is better to be evaluated by a psychiatrist...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
