I have been told I have bursitis in right hip. The pain is unbearable. I started with pain Christmas 2013. It started just above my knee, I saw a doctor in the new year and he put a steroid injection in to my leg and it eased the pain then I started with severe pain in my hip and leg. I went backwards and forwards to doctors for 6 months, had physio, every painkiller, 3 steroid injections, MRI scan, xrays, more physio, sent to a orthopaedic surgeon, discharged from surgeon, back to docs then awaited an appointment for pain clinic, it goes on and on. 2 years and 2 months later I'm still in agony, seeing a pain clinic doc, seen a pain clinic physio, awaiting an appointment for pain management, CBT, to help me cope with the pain for good, I have been told I will always have the bursitis but hopefully when I do eventually have CBT and pain management (not sure that's what they call it) I will have some relief from the pain this is the worse pain I have ever had. I have pain in my hip bone too and pain killers don't work. They make me drowsy and sleepy and feel shit. I've had co-codamol tramadol and morphine. . I use a tens machine which helps a little but its all about trying to keep mobile which is hard and exercise is agony. Ive been on amitriptyline for nearly 7 years ( due to back pain) I'm so sick and fed up of the pain now its taken over my life. I'm starting work as a night care assistant next week which I am looking forward too. I am so fed up its unreal.
