I am a 40 year old female. I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and bursitis in both hips. I have received steroid injections into my left hip in the past but that was about 4 years ago. I have back pain and basically all the symptoms to go with the fibro. Both have been diagnosed a few years ago. I was in a severe car accident in 1991. I visit my doctor regularly the last time about 2 months ago. My left hip has been inflamed for many months now but not with that much pain. Over the past few days I have developed severe pain in my left hip. The worst of the pain is on the top of my hip and radiates around to my back and to my abdomen area and down the front of my pelvis into the inside of my thigh. I went to the doctor and she gave me medrol for the inflamation. I have an appt with an ortho but not till the 14 of Jan. Tonight the pain is very bad on a scale of 1-10 it is a 10.. My leg nearly went out from underneath me a couple times. The bursitis has never been this bad before and I am not sure what is going on. Anyone who can offer some sort of advice or help it would be great. I am in tears from the pain I have been dealing with chronic pain from arthritis and the fibro but nothing like this. I could really use some advice.

Thank you.
