Dental anesthesia complications?

Four days ago, I had to get two fillings on the right side of my mouth. When the dentist was giving me the numbing injections, I felt a terrible, stabbing pain in my tongue that actually caused me to scream (and I am no stranger to dental procedures). It look longer than usual for the anesthesia to wear off that night, but four days later, my tongue is still numb. I have feeling, but it just feels like it's been badly burned on the right side or I have Orajel on it... It has not gotten any worse or any better in the past few days.

Is this normal?
