Cortisone injections into my inflamed bursa helped immensely!

I have Polymyalgia Rheumatica in hips and shoulders,when first diagnosed I could hardly turn over in bed let alone getting up from bed. Was put on prednisone plus injections in hips. It helped a lot. Now dropping 1 MG. on pred. at a time each month from 15mg. Was put on Plaqienil 200mg. twice a day, the rheumy. said it will take 3 months to be able to tell if it helps.
She said it was bursitis too. Who knows just keep trying tests until they find markers. Hate the prednisone. Hope you can find something to help the pain.

Have a pain free day,

I have had bursitis before and it really hurts! My rheumy offered the shots but I didn't want to do them so he gave me a Medrol dose pack (similar to pred) and that did the trick and I haven't had another episode.  I know someone else suggested the plaquenil and that is a great med that I have been taking for a long time. Steroids work best for the bursitis though...

Hi Everyone,maybe i will ask to be put back on predisone again because it also helps my back but I also start pt on wed. My bursitiits really  hurts I knows . the only side effect I have from pred is I gain weight from it and I recently lost 25 pounds and dont want to put it back on. I hope everyone has a lpd. Thank you everyone for the advice.
