Someone please give me some advice on what to do about my hip problem. I can't seem to find a doctor who really wants to take the time to help me. I have had Trochanteric Bursitis ( on the outside of my hip ) for over 2 years now. No amount of rest helps it to resolve. I have seen 2 Orthopedic surgeons in the past 5 months and had 2 series of Cortisone injections with very little relief. I am to do physical therapy but can't because of the pain. I have had an MRI which shows bursitis and tendonitis . Both of these doctor's are in Sports Medicine. Is that why they aren't very helpful, because I am not an athlete. I am just a middle aged stay at home mom who desperately wants help. I am becoming more and more depressed feeling that I will be in this pain for the rest of my life.

Your condition is called Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome....do some research on that. I know because I have it too and its giving me a lot of problems. I'd think twice before more injections....sometimes they can do more harm than good.

I am going to see Dr Byrd in Nashville. Hip Arthoscopic surgery is useful for this condition and Dr Byrd invented it. I will let you know what he tells me. I have a post in another thread...titled Gluteus Medius tendinosis or something like that if you want more information about my experience. I've had a lot of chronic pain for a long time...so I know what you are going through and feel bad for you.
