I agree that you should question a shot of cortisone. My preference is to avoid giving diabetics cortisone unless it is the last resort. I would suggest an MRI or CT scan to show anything that might be going on. A bone scan shows activity which is an increase in the bone metabolism, but doesn't really home in on the cause. You might see another doctor for another opinion.
