What causes chills and belching after receiving a Cortisone injection?

Had a cortisone injection last week in my foot. Now feeling freezing cold, then hot, sick, belching something terrible, tired, little gastric and feel I want to vomit but don t. Really don t think it was the injection as I have had them before in my hit with no problem and before that I would get hot flushes after I ate or a hot drink. The freezing bit worries me as I had Malaria about 30 years ago and have had an episodes only a few time since. Thank you. I am 73 female

I received a cortisone injection in both ankles yesterday around 4pm. I have a headache and face is very flushed and warm today. I had same injections in both feet in March with no issues. Could this headache and flushing be from the recent injections. Thank you, Rita Lynn YYYY@YYYY

My doctor gave me a cortizone injection in my neck yesterday in an attempt to dissolve scar tissue. This is the the 3rd injection in 6 months. I woke up at 3 a.m., could not go back to sleep, and my heart is racing to the point of hurting. I d like to know how long to expect these side effects, and how long cortizone stays in your system. Thanks.

Yes Dr., Had a cortisone injection in my right shoulder 3 days ago. Woke up in the middle of the night fire. Then the next day did not sleep a wink, and was soaked to the bone in sweat. Very dizzy. Can you help me with answers to these comments please? Thank you
