I have severe pain in left hip. Have has Steroid shot 7 days

Customer Question

I have severe pain in left hip. Have has Steroid shot 7 days ago. Got relief for 1 day then pain returned. I've been icing 20 on & 40 off. 2 Advil every 4 hours. Trying to stay off of it. But need to be @ desk. Will see primary dr on Th and ortho dr next week. Will have MRI done next week and maybe X-ray. My Rt hip is bone-on-bone, but does not have much pain since the left hip started acting up. The primary & PT think it's tendonitis in the left hip.
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: Mild pain for several months and severe pain for 10 days.The ice & sitting or lying down helps. Also the left hip pain radiates into left groin.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I'm an amputee, Rt BK, but that is mostly pain free.
