    Has anyone had experience with using supplements to help bursitis?  I find that Glucosamine/Chondroitin helps me quite a bit, which was a surprise; I took it initially to shut my husband up, but I can REALLY tell the difference when I forget to take it for a few days. I'm...

    I went to a pain management clinic in town for a consultation from the excruciating hip/leg pain I am in every day from about 11am to bed time. I have been in pain for over 3 years, but I don't think that the bursitis started until maybe a year or year and a half ago. The pain...

    I've had it, in the outer hip joint of one leg, since early 2009.  I'm not sure what set it off.  I did do some unwise things to my body around that time.  Nothing interesting.  :)Anyway, it's worse when I sit for more than about 10 minutes, even worse if I...

    Hi!  I am a 48 yr old female from Wi.  I have bursitis in both hips and both elbows.  This is not fun.  My dr wants me to get cortosone shots but I am a bit afraid to do that.  I was on prednesone and that worked amazing!  Too bad my dr wont let me stay on that.
