Possible: It will be all about timing as both above conditions may cause your symptoms and others as well. If your symptoms started clearly after you had your shot it is more likely the steroid. If that is the case the symptoms should dissipate away in few more days. If symptoms remain or get worse seeking medical attention is recommended.
