after a steroid
injection for bursitis
the pain is often worse for a week or two before it settles down. when the pain is more severe following a steroid injection this paradoxically in my experience often means that the injection is more successful in the long term of relieving the symptoms, so hang in there it should get better. make sure you don't have any redness
or swelling in your thigh consistent with a cellulitis
as a result of the injection as this might require antibiotic treatment.
