I had a steroid injection from the Rheumy in December fro Trochanteric bursitis and, eventually, I am now able to sleep on that side without strong painkillers. The problem is that I am still having a lot of groin pain on the same side and wondering if I have other bursitis in the hip area? If so how do I get it diagnosed and treated when I am not due back to the Rheumy until April?
I have tried Bowen with no success and am currently trying Acupuncture which may help but hasn't done so yet. The acupuncturist and osteopath both notice how many of my thigh and hip muscles are in spasm at the moment but very little seems to change that. The osteopath tried to massage the whole area which just resulted in more pain and no improvement. The biggest problem is that it is all affecting my mobility so much that I can hardly walk anywhere and can't even swim at the moment- getting up off a chair is bad enough!
