Does injecting Deca Durabolin in the buttocks cause pain in the hips?

I have severe muscle pain in my right left at the hip join (site of surgery from 2 years ago). Yesterday, I self injected Deca in my right buttocks. The usual swelling and pain continued for a day. 24 hours later, the pain is now so severe I cannot walk without assistance. I have a mild fever. I suspect the injection may have caused an infection that might be traveling down my leg. I m visiting from Brazil. I do not have health insurance and my limited funding maxs at $500. I m not sure what to do. I have been taking ibuprofun for 12 hours. It helps a little. while there is no apparent swelling or redness in the area on my hip where the pain is, there is a rash that I ave developed before. I used a clean needle to inject 1 ml of testosterone phynolproprianate. I cannot say if the injection and pain is directly related. But, it hurts enough for a 30 year old man to cry.

The injection is painful and can cause a pain in the soft tissue for a few days which gradually subsides on its own.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
