Is it possible to see someone else? Sometimes the medical team especially ones who are used to you make assumptions about you before you even walk in through the door (like a GP who assumed I had OA because I'm now old, not RD for a long time...)

Hi, just wondering if you have been offered any specialist pain management help. I know that this is not always readily available but it is worth finding out what there is in your area. In the meantime there is support provided by the British Pain Society:-

So sorry to hear this, I have RA and have developed a hip bursa, the pain from it is horrible radiating down my thigh, in my buttock and down to my knee. Finding it so hard to walk any distance or uphill especially stairs. What a bummer when we put up with all the other stuff, then get a hip bursa.
