I think I've just diagnosed myself with hipbursitis after a bit of internet research!!
The treatment recommends anti inflammatory drugs. can anyone tell me if these are available over the counter?
if it is painful it probably is inflammed so i doubt it'd do any harm to give them a go, just don't have them on a empty stomach. Ibuprofen is very cheap over the counter.
or..... you could ice it regularly to take down the inflammation.
Go and see a Dr!
However, Ibuprofen are very very effective anti-inflammatories BUT are not to be taken long term!
