Anyone had a cortisone injection while pregnant?

I'm 22 weeks pregnant and have severe shoulder pain from bursitis. I had this problem before I was pregnant and Dr. recommended cortisone shot. I got pregnant before I had the injection and the pain started getting better. Recently it has gone from bearable to extreme pain and I can not sleep even with prescribed pain medication. I am going to Dr. today but wanted to know if anyone has had similar problems and if anyone has had a cortisone shot while pregnant. Wondering if these are safe or risky?? Yes, I realize I will be asking my Dr. what I should do.
