Cortisone Shot

I have tendonitis in my left elbow. I took a cortisone shot this morning. Now my ring finger and pinkie finger are numb and have been ever since. Is this normal?

Re: Cortisone Shot

Yes. I have to get them in my wrist and my entire arm and hand goes numb for the rest of the day. My Doctor said it was normal. It's such a weird feeling!
