Cortisone and PVC's

Can cortisone increase number of PVCs?  
I've suffered from PVCs for some time and take Tropol 100mg daily. PVC's were under control, not completely gone but very subdued.  A week ago I started having more PVC's, many more the usual;  then I remember that I had a cortisone shot a couple of days earlier in my shoulder.  I know PVC come and go but could this recent bout be related to the cortisone shot? and how long should I expect it to last if so?

Thanks.

As a follow up,  after a couple of weeks of the cortisone shot the PVCs have subsided to normal levels.  Don't have a medical explanation but it’s certainly coincidental.
