Have sever hip pain

I have had hip pain for almost 6 months...went to dr, did x-ray....diagnosis was trochanteric bursitis...also had MRI on my back.....slight stenosis, level 1 slippage...took steroids for the usual 6 doses...then an injection in the hip...now in physical therapy and she feels it is not the ilitobial band as the dr suggested but tight glutes...says I am not tight in the IT band area....no relief of any kind yet, still at square 1....going to quit the PT....no confidence when the dr and PT do not agree as to the problem and especially when she wants me to start each session of PT riding a bike...I hurt when walking or standing....very tired ot this

I would further explore the hip by way of an MRI of the hip, looking for any possible hip ligament tears. For treatment, if physical therapy is not helping, I would try acupuncture next, as this is often very effective.
