Sounds to me like you may have debris in the valve body. I would turn off the water to the house. Pull the cartridge and shut the shower curtain or door then turn the water back on to the house and let it run for a few minutes. It's best to have someone in the bathroom to make sure you have flow and don't make a water mess.
