My hip has been slowiing aching deep inside for almost a year now and by now, I can't walk and am laid up. I kept telling them I thought I had an infection in it andthey kept tellng me it was musclar and Ineeded physical therapy. The therapist got tothe poin she didn't want to do more because it hurt me so bad. Well, finally now I have long streaks of weeping sores and the skin it sore around it is very painful to the touch. Finally now maybe theywill do a CT scan.
But I wondered why I get these deep tissue abscesses. Does anyone else get them? I've had them in my neck and now this. I started having a problem after a single dose of two steroid shots from the rhuemie. I think Iwas just so immuno suppressed from the shots that any tiny amount of germs that might have been in the air or on the needle got in and started an infection. It looks like staph. Any ideas? My lymph nodes are no good on that side since 1992 due to some unknown infection somewhere so maybe the infection has been there for a long time, longer than I think. HOw do these abscesses start?
