Managing bursitis and staying active

Posted by @galamairim1, Mar 21, 2016

I have bursitis and tendinitis of right ankle. I am taking 15 mgs of Prednisone a day for 15 days treatment only and it has alleviated my pain tremendously. Is there a new, long-term anti-inflammatory drug that you recommend I can take on a regular basis, once I stop taking the Prednisone??? Thank you for your response.

Ask your Doc if you could be allergic. Stop the pill if it is causing you pain.

Hello wondering how active women late 60s early 70s handle bursitis. When they have been active walkers ? success101

Hi @success101, and welcome to Connect. I’m tagging a few other members who recently wrote about bursitis. @marikat, @galamairim1 and @djrcrrar – I’m hoping you all are willing to share your experience.

@success101, when did you start experiencing symptoms?

One year ago i got achilles tendonitis.foot was in a boot 3 months.it developed a bunyon.painful.
I was in flower garden,took a terrific fall.took it to my bottom versus head an shoulders.in fall of 2015 the most painful bursitis hit both hips.
Had two shots,to no avail.just finished physical
therapy.the exercises have helped but must do them every day. Bought Hoka shoes from running store.
Im finally better.Do not think i will ever do 3 miles again. My goal 1.5 miles. It has been hard for me.lots of ice and heat. But, cooking more. Not so good.

Hi @galamairim1 and @success101 I merged your messages into one thread. It seems like you are both facing similar circumstances – bursitis and tendonitis. I thought you would like to connect.

Here is some information on bursitis and tendonitis from Mayo Clinic.

@success101, you mention that you had “two shots”. Are you referring to corticosteroid injections? It sounds like you have successfully avoided surgery by doing physical therapy and using good footwear. How far are you walking now? I look forward to the day you post a message saying that you walked 1.5 miles. I will throw confetti. 🙂

@galamairim1 How is your bursitis? Did you ever do physical therapy?
