My mom has had a terrible time of her bursitis. It is from her knee to her hip. This has been going on for almost a month now. I would love to know what can give her some relief. She is so miserable.

I could not stand up for more than 30 seconds without being in pain. I also had a leg rash that was not bothering me. It turns out it was an allergic reaction to the medicines I was given for a urinary tract infection (UTI). A single dose of Benadryl was given. The hip pain and the red rash went away!

I have pain at night when I try to turn in the bed. The hip bursitis is so painful that it makes me scream.

My bursa on my right hip have been inflamed for years now, the doctor gave me injections twice in 6 months, I am still in pain, he is now going to remove the bursa.

I have had hip pain for more than 10 years now. The doctor said it is bursitis but it won't go away, instead it is worse. I am moderately active and have had no injuries.

I am a 63 year old female and I have had hip bursitis for several months. I had 2 cortisone injections with minimal relief. Now I am going to try the foam roller to stretch out the IT (iliotibial) band to see if that works. I am a side sleeper, but the hip pain will not allow me to sleep on either side.

I have had this lump on my hip for many years; I can't lie on it because it hurts too much. It hurts all the way down my leg if I lay on it because of my hip bursitis.

I suffered extreme pain for 21/2 years after hip,replacement, finally I got a diagnosis that it was bursitis, I got a shot of cortisone in the bursa and the pain is gone. I hope it lasts, I have heard you can repeat these shots if the pain returns, what a relief, it sure took a longtime to diagnose it.
