What causes dizziness after receiving an injection on the lower back?

I received a shot in my back on Tuesday, because of lower back pain. I felt fine until today about one pm. When I get up to walk, I feel sort of dizzy and it feels like my blood pressure is high . I have a hard time breathing standing up. I am better sitting down. And I have a mild headache. I thought maybe it is the flu.
