Is sciatica and brusitis the same thing?

Um, if you could be so kind AnimalLover2, would you please explain the difference.

Sciatica is a nerve in your leg. Bursitis is inflamation of bursa. It can be in arm or leg. It is at joint.

Oh, thank you most kindly. I have heard them used interchangeably...now I understand difference.

Hi AnimalLover2, a few of us (including me) have been suffering from bursitis for a number of years. Mine is in my shoulders (subachromial bursitis). If you have pain companion we could chat and exchange ideas?

I have it too. Along with joint pain everywhere else coming from autoimmune disease. I'm on pain killers, Imuran and Plaquinel.

Ready to start relieving your pain?
