    Ouch!

    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.

    I am a 28 year old mom of 2 boys.

    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...
