New pain after cortizone shot weeks later still painful

Patient : I had a cortizone shot in my left knee 4 weeks ago, the excruating pain went away within two days, but the pain that i got it for is still there and a new pain as well. Its like a muscle pain in my whole leg, sometimes brings me to tears and makes it hard to walk... the pain is from my toes to the top of my hip. its an aching sometimes sharp pain.. should i tell my doctor right away? is this a side effect? I wasn't told about any side effects but from what i hear this isn't normal.
