My Dr called me today with the results from my MRI and it seems I have Bursitis in my left hip and thats whats been causing all my hip pain. He is faxing my results to UCONN to see what Dr Rothfield wants to do but in the mean time he is keeping me on the pain meds. He also talked to me about my heart cath results and told me he was able to get in touch with the cardio that did the cath and they went over what to do to treat my heart so I am starting on meds today finally for that.

I wish you all in thr US a very happy, healthy and safe Thanksgiving.

Hugs,
Patty

Hi Patty,

Sorry to hear about yor hip. YES, I have had plenty of problems with that!! Very painful isn't it, especially at night when trying to sleep.

I have tried anti-inflammatories etc for this, but finally had to have my hip injected with steroids. It really helped!!!!

Here's a link for you to review on Arthritis / Bursitis:.

Hope you get relief soon!!

Love Pam

Hi Patty, I've had bursitis in the trochanter sp? bursa for years, in fact it was one of my first symptoms. I feel mine on the outside of the hip especially when I'm lying on it, very sore, even to touch and miserable to have. I also have true arthritis in the hip which I feel in the groin and down the leg. I take celebrex when it flares up and that helps some.
Good to hear they're starting you on something for your heart.
Take care,
Hugs, Piper

I to have lots of hip pain, mine is due to osteoartirits, today is been awful for me. I had gone to the store and I just ached when I was walking in and out. So I had came home and relaxed . Took a nice warm bath and hopefully it will make my hip feel better. Take care, Sam

my hip pain is also due to osteoarthritis like Piper and Sam. The pain can be nauseatingly strong at times, like a toothache. If I walk for any time at all it bothers me for days afterwards. I have had bursitis of the shoulder, but not the hip. It is quite a different kind of pain, more generalised, hot and pressure sensitive. With my shoulder, I found a hot shower, muscle relaxers, nsaids and rest to help.

Me too. I'm getting intensive PT: "isomed", kinesia tape, ultrasound and hot/moist packs. L hip - trochanteric bursitis. Also tendonitis in L shoulder - is this all connected to scleroderma??!! Wow, I didn't know.

Hip bursitis was my second sign, Raynaud's first. I'm doing physical therapy & that's helping a great deal. And I've replaced my computer chairs at home & work with exercise balls - another great help.

But I wonder, has this ever gone away for anyone?

Peace to all life.

Hi Patty,

I've also got it in my right shoulder and right hip, and it can hurt right through to the groin when it affects the hip! When I sleep on my side at night, I need a pillow between my knees to prevent further strain on the hip, and it makes a huge difference. It also helps to put it under my right knee when laying on my back, and my hips aren't as locked up in the AM as before. I hope you can get some relief soon!

Best wishes to you,
Elehos

I had the injections for my hip and I have to say that my hip is 99% better 99% of the time. I have a day here and there when I am in pain in my hip butn nothing like the pain I had when I posted this topic. I assume that its par for the sclero.

You use a ball instead of a chair? That is very interesting.

HI Patty and All who posted here,

Hip pain, no matter when it happens... isn't any fun!
It's ironic that you should post this when you did... I haven't been having a problem with mine until over the last few nights and when walking...oh boy!
To try to solve the porblem, I'm going to ask hubby if we can get a memory foam to sleep on... through my brother... and here... I'm convinced they help!
