I have had both shoulders injected, the left one twice. It really helped me. It was not particularly painful. My rheumy has me ice the injected joint for 20 minutes every two hours the rest of that day. Also, he tells me not to use/move the joint the rest of the day. It helps keep the cortisone in the proper place.

awe...i can empathize.the shoulders are quite a painful joint for injections and they do hurt. i cried for 2 days after mine. the injecting part was not as worse as the after days! very very painful, throbbing/stiff and couldn't raise my arms.
keep w/ the ice...it's like the best thing for this type of situation. and rest them as much as possible. have fun in Ammy! (don't have too much fun though! hah!) i'm sure your mini break wil keep your mind off your shoulders! LOL.
