I have it too and my ortho said no but the cortisone shots help after the 2nd and third time. I hope you feel better it can be extremely painful.
[B][FONT="Comic Sans MS"][COLOR="DarkOrchid"]Missygt, and others here, any more ideas on bursitis? I have had it before and it always seemed to clear up with a cortisone injection. This last bout is much worse. It has been almost a year and I am really getting frustrated. I think most of my friends a family think of it as a minor ailment and probably think I am being a baby. The pain is awful. I have gone to orthos, PT, spine specialists, acupuncture and now back with the chiro. They feel it is secondary to my spinal problems, but can't really clear those up due to the bursitis. I went to Europe in the spring and with all the walking and stairs, I felt that I could barely walk. The pain with each step gets knifelike. I am going to Italy in four weeks and hate to have it prevent me from seeing the sights. I am seeing my GP on Friday to get a script for a Medrol dosage pack. Seems like everyone says it just comes back, but I feel like I need even a few days pain free and a good nights sleep. Any suggestions? Thanks all, Barb[/COLOR][/FONT][/B]
