Hi Erica, Thank you very much for your kind reply. I am not taking any meds for my pain as my Dr. won't give me anything because she said that meds for the Bursitis will cause my stomach to be painful or bleed. I know I can't take aspirin or anything like this, so I am taking on my own, Tylenol for arthritis and Aleve together. They help a little, but not much and both are hard on my stomach and cause constipation. I did go to a very reputable physiotherapist and he gave me a couple of exercises to do with a stretchy band, but it really hurts to use it, but I keep on trying every day. Perhaps a cortisone shot would do me a lot of good if done by the right Dr. Thanks again and I will keep you posted as to what I end up doing.
