Hi, I have a question to ask which is I've been to the podiatrist today and the reason I went is because I have scoliosis and because of scoliosis I don't have balanced feet. My left leg is longer than the other. For scoliosis my podiatrist knows that I'm in treatment for it. I got orthodics today and they really are comfortable. I mentioned to my doctor that I have a lot of pain in my foot because in general my whole balance is on my left foot, because of my back my balance is all on my left foot. He told me that he can give me something by injection called cortisone. I want to know what is cortisone exactly? For such thing where would they inject it, is it in the foot?
My foot pain is in a way that when I'm walking and standing alot especially since my balance is all on my left foot I feel a lot of pressure on my foot and causes me to have such aches and I end up feeling a lot of pain. In such matter I don't know if cortisone is something I should get. I feel much better when I'm sitting though. I prefer sitting all day long. Somedays I'm okay some days I get such foot pain because of a lot of standing.
I do know that I'm allergic to lidocaine and when I mentioned it to my doctor he didn't tell me anything being wrong. I don't know if I get cortisone if it has lidocaine in it or not. What do you think I should do?
