I had an ultrasound guided steroid injection to my painful right hip for mild degenerative changes/ trochanteric bursitis a year ago, lasting 14 months. Sadly, the pain returned a week before I flew to North America for 4 weeks holiday. As I didn't have time to visit my GP, I continued taking my Sinemet 3 times a day, Coenzyme Q10, and started taking coconut oil with my breakfast. I have also been doing Qi Gong exercise since diagnosed with PD 18 months ago. Pleased to say, the pain seems to be easing off without arthritic/anti inflammatory medication.
