Still pain....bilateral greater trochanteric bursitis

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

This is what the PA at my doctor's office said I had yesterday after thorough examination. I have read up on it today on the internet & I agree with her. She gave me a steroid shot in each side of my hip in the bursa sac region. Ouch!! When she mashed on me to find the exact spot for the needle, that hurt worse than the actual shot. Felt better pretty quick, but as she said I would be hurting again by bedtime.....and I was! Another partial sleepless night. It will get better gradually over the next few days. I am just hoping for some sleep tonight.

No walking for me (or very little) until I get this under control.....sure will mess up my training program for the 5K cancer walk next month.....Oh, well.....when I am better will get back on the treadmill. Right now am tired of all this pain.

Hope everyone had a Spark-filled day!

    I hope the shots give you relief! Take it easy for now & jump back in when you're ready. There's no sense in overdoing it & being in pain. Feel better soon!!

    Oh, so sorry this is acting up. Can you take a pain pill or sleeping pill to get some rest. I pray it will end quickly so that you can get back to a full healing of the hip.

    I have that in my right hip and it's flared up the three time this year that I tried to take up running. I even blogged here about it. I can walk just fine but I find that this bursitis is a b**ch!

    Hope you feel better soon. Having it in both hips must be painful!
