question about cortison injections

  1. Hi all--
    Finally broke down and went to the podiatrist today for persistent plantar fasciitis that just won't heal. No bone spur, but doc gave me a cortisone injection in my heel, preceded by a shot of novocaine. Now the injection site hurts like &&^#$(@$. For those of you who have had the cortisone shots for PF, is it normal for it to feel sore like this after the numbing agent wears off, or is this a reaction of some sort? TIA
