Can bupivacaine and cortisone injections cause tinnitus I had two injections in my left and one in my right shoulder to relief bursitis?

I can't find anything that lists tinnitus as a result of cortisone. However, after my first shot of cortisone (knees), within 3 days I suddenly had significant tinnitus which has continued now for five weeks. Previously, I was aware that any anti-inflammatory medicine, from aspirin to aleve to celebrex, would cause tinnitus, limiting me to tylenol. However, with the nsaid attempts, when I quit the pills, the tinnitus went away. I'm quite anxious to see if this is going to disappear as the effects of the cortisone do.
