HelloCustomer

Is this pain different from your pre-existing pain or ,is it the same -but just worse?

What is the exact location of this pain?

Is this a shooting type pain?

Is there any radiation of this pain?

What aggravtes this pain & what relieves this pain?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
its pretty much the same. the pain is mainly in the back side of the hip at the top of the "crack" approx 1inch to each side. the left hip is the worst at this point and the pain is radiating around 2 the front hip point.it is a shooting pain. it radiats to the front. motion deffinetly aggrivates the pain, lying down helps relieve sum, and heat is a very temporary help.

HelloCustomer
It appears to be an aggravation of sacroilitis. The diagnosis can be confirmed by physical exam. Please consult an orthopedic surgeon for evaluation & treatment.
Evaluation may include blood work, x-ray of pelvis or MRI scan.
Treatment may include bed rest for 2-3 days, avoiding painful activities ,NSAIDs/ opiods for pain relief, local heat & massage and physiotherapy. Sometimes, a repeat steroid injection may work in this situation.
