anesthesia hit

I had a Novocain injection to fill a mandibular left second bicuspid. When given the injection in the back molar area I immediately felt numbing pain on the side of my mouth and lip, like a shattered mirror.  It took a while for the left side of my tongue to become numb before he started to work on the tooth.  A day later the lower left part of my lip still had a tingling like anesthesia wearing off. When I open my mouth wide I feel a "shot" of pain in that area along with a "cold" sensation on my bicuspid and cuspid. I assume the dentist nicked the trigeminal nerve. Question:  Will this disappear over time, get worse or stay the same?I
