Given two cortisol shots into my right shoulder. Shoulder is burning, and I have lost sensation of index and pinky finger. The shots haven't numbed.

In brief: Corticosteroid

Corticosteroid injection into the shoulder joint shouldn't cause that symptom. Carpal tunnel impingement at the wrist is more likely a reason.
If symptoms persist consult a hand surgeon or a neurologist for evaluation and advice.
