    Steroid shot effects

    My husband, 66, had a steroid shot for his lumbar stenosis about 3 weeks ago. Since then, he had a kidney infection that was treated with antibiotics. And he has developed a severe lower abdominal pain that is not going away. Xray is showing nothing. Blood test is showing no infection. Now he is starting to feel pain in his penis. He is also feeling hot sometimes, as if he is experiencing hot flushes.

    1. Does steroid shot cause hormonal imbalance?
    2. Will the hormonal imbalance cause such pains?
    3. Is this temporal? If yes, how long and how to releave his pains till the effect from the steroid shot wears off?
    4. If it is permanent, how to treat his symtoms?
