Is Chronic Fatigue caused from spinal steroid injections?

Published: July 9, 2013

I had 3 spinal steroid injections within a 2 month period and about 3 months later developed Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I have celiac disease and wonder whether the steroid shots have anything to do with the CFS showing up.


It is unlikely, although if on the edge of getting CFS from the other problems, it may have temporarily dropped your own steroid production and contributed to unmasking the CFS. In the situation, though, It generally would have kicked in any way within the next few months.
