Knee pain worsening days after cortisone shot

Patient : Hello, I am an 18 year old collegiate rower. I started having pain on the inside of my knee a few weeks ago. I was told I had plica. At a doctors recommendation, I stopped rowing for a week and was taking 3 Advil three times a day. While it did get a slightly better, it didn't hep much, so I received a cortisone injection 4 days ago. I was feeling sore from the injection the rest of the day and most of the day after that. Yesterday I wasn't feeling any pain. However today I've been experiencing the same knee pain I was feeling before the injection only now it is much worse then before the injection. Is this normal?
Symptoms:  right inner knee pain
