I got 2 Lidocain shots today at the ER. One in my shoulder and one behind my ear. This was my first time ever getting them and the ER, well they weren't very professional. I am concerned because 5 - 6 hours later and my arm is still numb. I tried calling the ER but they do not take questions over the phone. My personal doctor is closed for the week (yes I said week, turned Labor day into Labor week, weird huh?). Anyone know if this is normal?

The pain and stiffness of the muscles they injected into were causing me to be unable to move the entire right side of my body. They claimed it would numb the pain and relax the muscle, which it sort of did, but numbness is lingering longer than told
