Osteoarthritis :: Hip Bursitis And Osteoarthritis Pain
Nov 24, 2014
I have been suffering from hip bursitis, both sides, for about a year now. Two steroid injections into the worst hip haven't helped. I've been following a physiotherapy course for a month, but am still in pain. Added to this, I have osteoarthritis in my knees, top of my right foot and both thumbs, all of which are painful at the moment. I also am feeling very tired and under the weather. I will be seeing my Orthopaedic Consultant on Wednesday and am wondering what to ask him. He'll be checking on the hip bursitis, but will he be able to do anything about the arthritis? More steroid injections? Should I ask to see a Rheumatologist? My legs and hips feel very heavy and I'm so tired of feeling like this, with little energy.

The thing is my neck makes a grinding noise all day and every day , is this normal ? And my lower back is so unbelievably in chronic pain , I can't do anything without it hurting , it gets to the point where my back locks itself and I can't move and every now and then my back goes into a spasm and I end up in hospital because I go into shock and my lips turn blue , but all they do is inject me with some relaxant and send me home , I've asked my dr to get me an X-ray but all they give me is more and more morphine .

My OA is so severe now, and I am living in constant agony, with my life basically on hold until my next TKR (49 YO and feel like i'm on the scrapheap!) Anyway, I've been reading a bit about K Taping, and thought I'd give it a go. I can't BELIEVE how effective it is! The pain is all but gone, the grating bone-on-bone has reduced, and I can get in and out of my house without a crutch/stick! Which I haven't been able to do for about 12 month.
I only tried it today for the first time, but by golly I'm hooked! The relief is instant, and constant (so far).
Id be interested to hear if anyone else has tried it, and if the relief is long-lasting or a flash in the pan.
I have been told today that i need both knees replaced has anybody got some advice for me?

I have Osteoarthritis I think, although the doctor didn't really do any tests to confirm it. Perhaps there's nothing they can do, I don't know. Anyway, it started out when I had a frozen shoulder when I was sixty from fracturing a small bone without realizing it. Because of the strain on the other shoulder that subsequently froze up as well. I had to sleep on my back for nearly a year, but after two lots of cortisone injections into the joints and lots of active dancing in my bedroom whilst in agony, they finally freed themselves and got back to normal. After that episode I found that my lower back was painful when I got out of bed in the mornings, and my right knee would collapse with pain up and down the stairs. My right hip now gives me a lot of pain too, and sometimes all of these joints play up together, leaving me in lots of pain. I do find that paracetamol helps, and I do use voltarol etc. I have tried using flexiseq also, which is a topical treatment that is supposed to lubricate the joint, but it is very expensive at £18 a tube and I'm not really sure whether it works or not. It seems to work sometimes, but not others.

Also, I find that I can wake up occasionally with more or less no pain at all for no reason that I can make out. I wish I knew what it was! Perhaps something I ate, or just didn't do the previous day?? who knows??
Does osteoarthritis generally cause an elevated Sed Rate and and elevated C-Reactive Protein? Anyone have these tests elevated with your condition?

Has anyone found that these injections make you put on weight. I have had a fair few and due for some more next week. In the beginning I had a spine injection and then in the leg - I am on Pazital and Lyrica but a lose dose. But looking back, the injections have been the best as I walk quite a bit.

I know the UK have a maximum - but can't remember how many. I last had the injections about 3 years ago, 4 in one thigh and 3 in the other. I suppose it depends on the strength too but I haven't ever been told the strength.
everyone that suffer from osteoarthritis! I had to post a message about the recent news about a possible cure for the long term disease that's osteoarthritis. Recent research suggests that a compound ( sulforaphane) found in broccoli if used in the form of a pill ( you would have to eat vast amounts of broccoli to get equal benefits to one dose of the drug) blocks the inflammation and damage to the cartilage. SFX-01 it's called. Science is amazing I hope it will not take too long to have it available and help millions of people

My wife noticed yesterday that I had a very large lump on my right hip. It could have been there a while, I've no idea. I've been looking online and it looks like I may have Hip Bursitis but I have absolutely no pain at all.

I've been taking Ibuprofen and ice packs, which brought the swelling down yesterday but it's grown back overnight.
Can I have Hip Bursitis with no pain?
I'm 34 years old and I have recently gotten MRIs done to reveal L5-S1 a posterior disc bulge with disc protrusion that compresses my left S1 nerve root...I have been in constant pain for over 3 months now with pain shooting down my left leg/thighs and my left buttock kills me. I cannot walk without limping and it feels like my hip is out of socket.

I have tried physical therapy, muscle relaxers, vicodin, ibuprofen, icing, etc...nothing long lasting relief. Last Friday I had to have an endometrial ablation done and they must have jostled me around while I was under anesthesia or something because I am in WORSE pain than ever!!!
I was also told I have hip bursitis and it only makes this all worse.
I go in 2 days for an epidural lumbar steroid injection which I am also nervous about but hoping that provides some relief, although I read varied opinions. Spinal surgeon said they will try this out and then if it doesn't work they recommend surgery. Today I went to see a chiropractor who does acupuncture because at this point I will try anything.
Sitting, standing/laying, it all irritates me. I can barely sleep at night even with a wedge or body pillow. I wake up crying because I am so frustrated with this pain. Each day I am growing more and more depressed. I have 2 young kids and just moved into a new house and I feel helpless to get normal things done like laundry, emptying a dishwasher, or even picking something up off the floor.
I am a 3rd grade teacher and feeling very very worried about going back to work and even making it through the day. I cannot squat or bend and walking hurts. I don't know what to do and i guess I am just looking for any words of wisdom or advice.
I have a ton of stairs at my new house. Go upstairs to get to front door, stairs to go to master bedroom and stairs to climb back up, and stairs in the barn. I must have walked up and down stairs today at least 10 times to do things outside. Well it's no wonder my hips are killing me! Ugg! But why has no doctor recognized that as a cause for my trochanteric bursitis that no corticosteroids has even touched the pain and burning sensation in my right and left hip? I had AVN supposedly left hip femoral head crushed like a ping pong ball and I cried at the diagnosis and treatment for hip replacement to find out after surgery I'm an inch shorter now on the left side. I totally appreciate that and yes I'm down right mad. I'm in worse pain now than when I had a crushed femoral head bone. I'm more upset that I'm still in pain and docs are just taking my money left and right and no results. Just keep taking a piece of me away, oh take some antidepressants that will take the pain away. What a joke! I'm subject to drug testing too for being in pain, this sucks! Especially when I see so many youngsters without pain. I wish I could go back 5 years ago. I might have changed what I ate, where I lived, dietary supplements and types of housing, stretching and exercise. Sorry about the rant, I just can't take the pain anymore!

I was diagnosed with this condition a few years ago in my left hip. I was given a steroid injection in my thigh and to be truthful, I completely forgot about the pain. I still get niggly pain, but nothing I can't cope with. In January this year, I was diagnosed with it in my right hip and was given a steroid injection in March. It worked for a couple of days, but after that, the pain is worse than before. I am due a follow up in September. Painkillers don't seem to help at all. Any other sufferers out there?

I've had this nasty problem for almost 5 years now. I was in a severe vehicle collision where I fractured my L1 vertebrae, and then about 6 months later, I started getting this nagging pain in my left sit bone and down my leg.

I was misdiagnosed for the first 3 years of it. At first they thought I had piriformis syndrome ( which is most doctor's first diagnosis since it sends pain down the sciatic nerve. I did 6 months of rigorous physio/chiro/needling to attempt to fix the pain, but nothing helped.
Then they thought it was a bulging disc radiating pain down my back from the injury.
All the while, my pain was getting worse and worse. Taking more and more pain medication. Getting heavy into the opiates. Then after losing my career in the military, and after a year of wasting time. I finally got in to see a spinal specialist. one who teaches around the world and after 5 minutes of asking questions and a couple of manipulations, he diagnosed my with Ischial Tuberosity bursitis.
While I was happy to finally KNOW what it was. It hasn't been fixed. I get cortisone injections every six months, and unfortunately the relief is is not the best. I am taking a Fentanyl patch for consistent pain relief.
It sucks that a pain in my butt is a constant in my daily life. It's depressing and it makes it so i can't live like a normal person....doing normal things....movies, dinners, socializing, driving... etc.
All I do, is try to keep on moving......moving....trying to stay flexible...doing my stretches....trying to keep in decent shape and health.
If anyone wants to chat about their issues with Ischial Bursitis, I'd be glad to. Or if anyone wants to know about treatments etc....ask away.
I have had issues with a frequent urination and a constant pressure on my bladder for over a year now. But since January of this year I have been experiencing extreme pain in my low low abdomen (like groin/cervix area). The pain also resides in my stomach and back. My ribs are sore to touch and I am constantly achy. I have been to the doctors who have done internal exams and say that everything LOOKS ok. I am 20 years old and my periods are regular. The pain is becoming a real problem and I'm becoming increasingly concerned. I have had ultrasounds on my pelvis and kidneys and they were fine. I've been put on meds to stabilise my bladder, but the gynaecologist won't see me for another 4 months. I know there is something further wrong with me - I can't understand why the pain keeps occurring. I don't enjoy having sex due to pain and a constant discomfort and pressure-like feeling. I'm starting to get very depressed as there is no diagnosis being made and all the tablets I am given do nothing.

After my mistake (HIV scare) I have all these symptoms heart wall pain, chest wall pain, radiating pain to the whole body, and headache, and cough and sputum. X-ray 6 times in 6 months and doctors can not see what is wrong with me. Do I have a virus going inside my body? A viral infection?

the symptoms are pierced-like pain in lungs, heart, or liver. sometimes it happen in my stomach but i assumed that it was because i eat something. sometimes a shortness of breathing happen and i coughed a lot, i didn't cough blood though. can you help me?
I'm a 17 year old female and I'm hoping somebody can help me out. I've been sick and out of school for over a month now. It all started with severe back as chest pains that were diagnosed as pleurisy. We later found out that I did not have pleurisy though. Through a series of blood tests my ANA came back very positive (I took it twice just to be sure, 2 weeks apart from each other) so my doctors were looking at lupus. Those were my only symptoms at the time though. Starting this past Sunday I've been having joint pains particularly in my wrists up my forearms to my elbows and in my hands. When I move my wrists they keep popping too which is strange to me. I'm always exhausted now which is so unlike me. I play lacrosse and am an in shape teenager but everything seems to be spiraling downward for me.
