@maryflorida@amandajro Yes, I have bursitis in both hips. It's been a battle for years now. As I mentioned in a post in another discussion this morning, cortisone shots have helped me tremendously, but it is important to get a very skilled doctor. Too often they don't hit the exact spot and then there is no relief. I was fortunate to find a doctor, after many who missed the spot, who did get it right. If I was starting to find a doctor now for a cortisone shot I would go to a physiatrist. They are doctors of physical medicine and when they do cortisone shots they use some type of low X-ray imaging to get the shot to the exact right spot.
I am hesitating to get a shot now because I have developed advanced osteoporosis from taking prednisone. Cortisone is of course also a steroid so I fear that it may worsen my hip osteoporosis, which is the last thing I want to happen. I plan to ask my endocrinologist about that.
