Hip bursitis

Sep 17, 2016 8:32 PM

Just wondering if anybody has it and what to do for pain relief. I'm going to see my doctor on Monday. Not even sure if it is bursitis at this point. Thanks in advance 😊

I do. It had finally seemed to improve then about three weeks ago became super inflamed all over again. A mix of heat and ice. I say a mix because some days I think I need heat but that makes it worse so I double ice after realizing that and vice versa.

Aleve seems to be helpful. Ibuprofen might be better but in allergic so I can't really say.

My dr gave my stretches to do. They helped if I kept up
And didn't push to hard.

Good luck

Oh! I am so sorry. I had bursitis in my elbow. It was HORRIBLE!!! I used anti inflammatory meds and heat packs combined with holding my arm still.

Fingers crossed that you'll be better soon.

Thank you both:-) I will try both heat and ice today and if that doesn't work then I will ask my dr tomorrow morning thanks again🌷and GOD BLESS🌹

I have had this in hips in past. I agree with heat & cold, antiinflamatories, but the three times I had it my doctor gave me deep joint injections.

Steroid injx are the only thing that works when it sets in, both hips and shoulders.

Thanks flappy:-)
I had my dr appt yesterday and that is exactly what she did......... But ever since I woke this morning my pain levels are through the roof!!!!!!! It's not just in one spot either, it's from the middle of my back down to my knee and kinda wraps around to the front and it's just knowing at me. I take cyclobenzaprine and Percocet for pain but nothing works
