Hi all, Im new here!
Im not sure this is in the right place.
I have been suffering with hip pain since 2013 but only last year, after a misdiagnosis of OA, I got an actual diagnosis of iliopsoas tendinopathy, bursitis, femoroacetabular impingement in my left hip. In the right hip I have bursitis, labral tear, para-labral cyst and femoroacetabular impingement. The pain is currently worse in the left hip, it hurts at night when I am trying to sleep and when resting, I have been advised to sleep with a cushion between my legs and to not cross my legs when resting
I am concerned about getting the injection done for health reasons. I am not exactly slim and I am overweight but I do make sure I walk every day and I am aware that getting the injection done can cause weight gain. Last year alone I lost over 2 stone and I really do not want to gain it back. Both of my parents have had steroid injections, my mother put on a stone and a half after she had hers where as my father did not put any weight on.
