Wrist pain after hard training, took Cortisone injection, pain worsened. Worried ?

I am a 26 year old male that had wrist pain after a week of hard training. I only had pain when I did pushups or bend the wrist forward. I could do pull ups etc. After 2 weeks the pain got better and then worse again. I used anti-inflammatories but it did not help. So the Dr injected cortisone in die wrist. I had 2 cortisone injections in the same wrist before when I was 15 and 19. When I got it back then I had no pain and could train after a week again. After the injection I got now the pain is 10x worse. It is the second day after the injection and the pain is agonizing. I have barely any range of motion in my wrist. It is especially sore when i move my fingers or try to open and close my hand . I can not even pick up a glass or start my car. Did the Dr damage something? I am really worried, because I am a personnel Trainer and need my hand for work.

Thanks for writing to us.
The cortisone injections are given to reduce the inflammation around the wrist. Since the pain has aggravated after the injection, you need to get an MRI scan of the area done to detect any other injury in the area.
