Severe pain and bruise after taking IM injection in buttock area for nausea. What could this be?

I had surgery over 2 months ago. I was given an IM injection in the hip/buttock area for nausea. Currently I have severe pain deep in the injection site and the pain is worse when I walk/jog/run or even grazing anything on the surface of that area. The pain is not on the surface though... I feel it deep in my hip/buttock area and it is a numb but tingly pain with a burning sensation; at a sitting position, it feels like a bad bruise.

Thank for asking to HCM
This is because of the trauma at the site of pricking the needle that might have injured the deep nerve fiber and that may be irritating, the abscess formation is the only worrisome otherwise this will come around soon no need to do anything for pain purpose you can try anti-inflammatory drug have nice day.

General Surgeon Dr. Ashish Verma's  Response
The pain could possibly be due to a minor injury to th nerve lying there during the injection.
It will take some time to recover... till then you can take sos analgesic... adding a neurotonic will enhance th healing process..
