No progress from me unfortunately, still not running
Going for some more cortisone tomorrow, this time under GA and x-ray and deeper into the joint. We will see!
I have read that bursitis very rarely occurs in isolation, it is almost always triggered by some other tissue damage but these consultants like to treat the symptoms and are not always great at finiding the cause! A good friend of mine has been out of action with hip bursitis for months and through a 2nd opinion found out that she actually has a labral tear
Carry on taking it a bit easier Rich and best of luck to you and everyone else.
Hi Rich, glad to hear you are doing some running even if you are having to keep the distances short!
It's been 2 weeks since my jabs now and my knee is feeling a bit better but my hip is not (ironic as knee was the primary cause, hip just followed!). Walking about is fine and I think if I ran on perfectly flat pavement with perfectly even strides, very slowly, I'd manage a mile or so, but any sudden turns/ over/under striding etc and it would aggrevate. So I'll give it another week and then perhaps return to the consultant. Might give swimming a try at the weekend too.
Good luck to both of you - will be interested to know how you get on. I have had bursitis of the left knee and hip since July (although only diagnosed in November after an MRI scan). I have tried all the tricks above, anti-inflammatories, ice, stretching, completely stopping exercise but the aches still remain. So, it's a cortisone injection for me next which is booked for January. I am slightly nervous as I know this treatment is quite contraversial but being out of action for 6 months has really got me down! I did carry on running when the pain was milder and am now in a right mess so I would urge you to lay off the running untill you are completely pain free!
