Yes, I have had random areas of my body get "inflamed" from time to time. Like the week the tops of my feet felt like fire ants were biting them all week. Or the leg muscles that sometimes feel like they have huge knots in them, but I've done nothing to instigate it and no-one else can feel them - they spontaneously disappear as fast as they appear.
I might question the shots for pain -- is hiding the pain just masking some more real problem that needs to be addressed? Like inflammation or some actual muscle/tendon strains?
Definitely put this on the list to chat with your Dr about
! Good thing you have an appt soon!
