Local Anaesthesia.. few days later, severe sharp pain in butt/hip!!

My vanity seems to have led me here.

About 2 weeks ago, I had a small cyst removed from my right shoulder.
A local anaesthetic (Lidocaine I was told) was injected around the site.
I was a bundle of nerves, as I had never gone under any knife before, but, this was bothering me for some time, so I decided to get it removed. Afterwards, I passed out from nervousness, and when I came to, my right ankle was throbbing from pain, but apparantly I passed out while sitting on a chair.

A few days went by, when one morning I awoke to sharp "muscle" pain ONLY in my RIGHT hip and buttock area. It hurt so bad I couldn't move without wincing from pain.

It's been over a week now, and 2 days ago I noticed a dull ache on the front of my right shin area of my leg.

Now, I STILL have the pain in my right hip/butt.
I was told by my Dr. to take Ibuprofen along with a muscle relaxant at night.
I've been stretching, taking epsom salt baths, applying heat and muscle relaxing creams, but to no avail.


Can anyone else out there in cyberland relate to this?

- Hurting :(

  • was near your shoulder, then it is pretty unlikely that your buttock, hip pain is related to / caused by the procedure, except for your nervousness during the procedure, and the resulting tensing of the muscles during the waiting for it to be done, and during it..
    Sciatica, if that is what it is, can occur at any time, and can flare up even when nothing appears to be the cause of it.
  • Is it a possibility that a local injection could have hit a nerve perhaps?
    I just find it interesting that it was occurred on the same side of the body and only a few days after. I have never had back or body pains before in my life.
    I did lose conciousness after the procedure. Could my muscles have tensed up then?

    I'm no medical professional. I am merely posing questions...trying to find an answer for why I have this "sciatic" hip pain.
    Is physiotherapy or seeing a chiropractor beneficial for sciatic pain?

    it would have caused nerve related problems in your upper body, not sciatica. You could have caused a flare up of sciatica by sitting too long, but that's not related to the procedure at all.
    Physical therapy might help but I wouldn't go ahead with a chiro until the pain settles down some.
