... following my second steroid injection. I informed my doctor that I felt the shot had caused the severe pain I'm now feeling. Prior to this I had severe groin pain when walking. The 1st injection alleviated this pain, but then I experienced pain in my trochanter area, which is where the 2nd injection was given. When I attempt to sleep I'm experiencing severe muscle/nerve spasms. Have any of you had similar problems, or severe pain and/or AVN secondary to an injection? Also, I'm sorry that everyone is suffering pain, this really sucks! I'd appreciate any feedback. I live in Oklahoma and it seems that most of the cutting edge research is taking place in New Jersey and Florida. Again, thanks
