Oh poor you... do hope all mended soon


Sorry to hear that you're feeling poorly and I hope the physio helps soon. Your patchwork looks yummy as always.

I hope the physio helps - but you might want to ask about a cortisone injection? My step mum was suffering, and the injection has helped her enormously. The pain has gone, and consequently as she can get around more easily, she is feeling so much better and happier. Good luck. x

Wishing you a speedy recovery! My mom also found relief from the cortisone shots, but don't do too many, not good for your bones in the long run.


Oh my goodness!!! You have just described exactly what I have been going through with my left leg and hip. It is very painful, indeed. What are you doing for it?

I hope you are feeling better soon.

I would suggest you see a chiropractor, a really good one, I have had the same problem off and on and my wonderful lady fixes it in just a coupld of treatments. magnesium loosens the muscles that are pulling on your hip as well, chelated magnesium. '
I hope you find relief and blessings to you.


Oh, I'm so sorry about your bursitis! I can really be excruciating! I was diagnosed with bursitis about 30 years ago and was given some heavy duty ibuprophen that only gave me a stomach ache. I started taking glucosamine and chondroitin and that does work (well, now they say only the glucosamine is what works). Try it. It takes a few days to build up in your system. When I start feeling better and run out or forget to take it, I get flare ups again. I hope you have success with it too.

When I first got it I had a job that required me to do a lot of walking out on cobblestones and uneven pavement in the city in my heels. My hip hurt so much that when I walked I'd switch to tennis shoes and that made a world of difference. I'm not saying you have to always wear sensible shoes, but you'll probably feel better wearing shoes such as Keans or Merrils. The Merril store has a machine you can stand on and get fitted for an insert to go in most any shoe. I recommend them. Once, I got a new pair of shoes from REI and immediately after wearing them began getting the most excruciating pain in the mornings. I took them back and it went away. There was something not right about how it aligned my hips when I walked.

I've never had shots or been to a chiropractor, but have been able to manage my flare ups pretty well.

So I tell you these things so you might be able to determine why you got this and maybe change your shoe or walking habits to prevent it. Good luck!!


OOps, I forgot to say that a foam roller will do wonders for your IT band! When I was suffering with bursitis I could never trust my hip and never thought I'd be able to do any physical activities, but I'm 52 and very active. I do high intensity interval training 3-4 times a week and have done many 10 + mile hikes on uneven paths. I roll out after every workout. Look it up and you can see the routines for the IT band. It is easy to use and doesn't take very long, either.


I have had bursitis in my hips (worst in the right one) and was prescribed PT for about seven weeks. To be truthful I don't know if the PT helped at all. Most of the time my hips hurt worst after PT. Never had the shots or chiro. I have flare ups every so often. I take Advil and use a heating pad when it is more painful. Not sure why I have this condition as I don't do sports but it is probably related to aging. Hope you find relief soon! Good luck!


I'm so sorry, Beata. I hope, you'll feel better soon. I have something called the piriformis syndrome in my legs. It comes and goes, but I can always feel it. Sitting in the car is really bad for me sometimes, so I know, how it is about sitting. Some nights can be really hard, when I unable to find a way to rest proberly because of the pains. I send you a big hug!
