Could the steroid injection get me rid of the pain in my left buttock for a long time.?Does it have a side effect especially that I have fibromyalgia?

In brief: Diagnosis?

The answer is likely yes.
It depends on the cause of the pain. Have you seen a doctor? You may have sacroiliac pain or piraformis syndrome.

In brief: Depends!

If injected im, you were getting a quick dose of cortisone.
Won't last. On the other side, if the muscular trigger point was injected, expect longer relief!
