Post Epidural Cortisone Injection Pain

Yesterday at 6AM, I underwent a cortisonr injection in my back to relieve a herniated disc (L4-L5) which "compresses the thecal sack and impinges on the L5 nerve roots". Today, there is a definite increase in the pain and the medicines prescribed seem to be much less effective  than usual (Ultram 200 ER, Naproxen, Celebrex, and Hydrocodone/APAP). Is this normal for a time period after the injections as my doctor says? This pain is getting to me more than I can stand almost.

After injection the pain increases but it will subside in couple of days.

The pain also depends on proper delivery of the injection and the site of injection. If these precautionary measures were taken properly the pain will subside. Take care!
