Extreme/prolonged hip pain after hip cortisone injections
Hello! I received bilateral greater trochanter corticosteroid injections in August to treat suspected trochanteric bursitis in both hips. I was unable to walk almost immediately after the injections and 2-3 days following. I understand that this could've been a cortisone flare. However, in the 5 months since the injections, my mobility remains severely impacted - my bilateral hip pain is easily 20x worse than before the injections. Imaging done post-injection shows labral tears, burisitis and tendonitis in both hips. My doctor does not know why my pain has gotten worse and is effectively shrugging at my concerns. I am 33/f an otherwise healthy. I completed a course of PT without improvement. Is it possible that the injections caused the labral tears or other soft tissue injury?
