steroid shot.. side effects?

My doctor gave me a steroid shot the other day because of ongoing illness (I have whooping cough and an ear infection.) Since getting the shot I have been very shakey and problems with my stomach. I haven't seen any improvement on my illness and now I have a temp of 99.3 which had been gone for a while last week.... are these normal side effects?

Re: steroid shot.. side effects?

Is it something I should be worried about? I knew that I wouldn't be 100% b/c it takes forever to get over whooping cough my dr told me. I just don't want to have to go back to the dr again. When I went she wrote me a prescription for antibiotics b/c of my ear being very infected, but she hoped that the steroid would help and told me not to take it till friday. So I filled it on Friday and feel worse...
