I need some info about Bursitis (in hip this time). The pain has been mostly on right side but goes from my hip joint to my lower back. The pain in joint hurts to touch, sharp pain, painful to lay on. The lower back pain is like sciatica but does not travel to leg, painful to get up and down from sitting or laying, with some spasams. I told Rheumi last week and he pushed right on bursa joint in hip and, Yes, it hurt. He said it is probably Bursitis and he can give me cortisone shot if it bothers me but, it has nothing to do with Lupus. Well, I have been lying on my belly on the floor for last couple of days (only place it stops hurting for a while) exploring the net looking for answer. If you look up Bursitis it suggests it can be from injury, repetitive motion or Lupus. So, I don't know if it is Bursitis, Sciatica or arthritis, but it is very painful and tiring me out because it keeps waking me up if I move wrong way. Is this something that will get worse or just might be gone tomorrow? Any advise, please! Is it Lupus related?
