Had shot of dextrose (prolotherapy) in my achilles' tendon 3hrs ago & my heel & bottom back half of my foot is numb still. Should it be still numb?
Maybe: The injection could have also contained a local anesthetic, which can last anywhere between 2 to 12 hours.

Either way, it should return to normal after some time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
