Angry Numbness After Novacaine

Seven days ago I had four hours of dental treatment. By late afternoon the numbness was gone but two hours later my tongue got numb and has been numb since. The dentist said this is not very common. She prescribed a course of steroids which I just finished, still numb. She says it should come back may take weeks or months. I'm in tears this morning. I have been dealing with post operative nerve damage for six years which has left me with permanent numbness in my chin from a different procedure. I'm praying this simple procedure resolves itself quickly before I go out of my mind.
