Hey, all! I saw autumneve's message and thought I'd post an update! It's now been 2.5 years since the pain started that was eventually diagnosed as trochanteric bursitis.

One of the things I found relieved the discomfort short term was a portable TENS unit. I took to wearing one all day and turning the juice on any time pain started to creep up on me, which was often. I could reserve pain medication for whenever the TENS couldn't do it alone.

A little over a year ago, my mother talked me into seeing her massage therapist, at her expense. She specializes in medical massage.

At first I'd feel a lot of relief that would gradually evaporate throughout the week. She would stretch the muscles that were pulling my joints out of place and really work on the fascia. She prescribed strength building exercises (especially core) and reinforced the need to stretch at home.

Eventually, the benefits of the massage and exercise began to be retained better. In her words, I was "stabilizing." I could walk longer and sit up at least a little.

The real miracle for me happened about 8 months ago, when my mother talked me into seeing her chiropractor as well (also at her expense). The chiropractor not only did adjustments like you'd expect from a chiropractor, but also did therapy for breaking up subcutaneous scar tissue, spinal decompression (aka traction - she thought that the disk bulges my orthopedic physician had dismissed were probably causing me more pain than he had thought) and she introduced me to something caled SCENAR - for nerve damage. She prescribed herbal supplements that relieved inflammation but contained no asprin (or willow bark).

Now I have a life again. I'm able to do most of the things I used to. I can drive again, although sitting up for long periods is still a mistake. My pain is not completely gone - but it's manageable. I was able to discontinue the supplements a few months ago and take pain medication very rarely.

There's hope. Don't rule anything out - investigate everything and keep an open mind.
