What shots did they give you? A steroid shot? If they have given steroid then usually it takes time to act. And if it is given to the bone incorrectly then it becomes even more painful than this.

If it is surely a steroid then we can give any painkiller additional to counteract the problem. Kindly give us information about the procedure he has undergone to treat you.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
