See your doctor: I would go back to your doctor and nurse and explain your symptoms. You should be checked to see if you have any bleeding, infection or swelling that is causing your pain. If your symptoms worsen dramatically please go to a nearby ER or urgent care for evaluation.

Unlikely: you may have local muscle pain from the irritation of the medicine, given this was an intra-muscular injection it is highly unlikely your shoulder was damaged and with some Naproxen or Ibuprofen this pain should subside soon
