I have had bursitis in many joints including Trochanteric bursitis. My rheumatologist has injected mine a couple times. My rheumy uses ultrasound to diagnose it. However, not many US docs use ultrasound technology for that. Otherwise, an MRI would best diagnosis the problem. If you can't see a rheumy then an ortho doc should be able to help.

Thanks for your reply, unfortunetly since having a plate in my cervical I can no longer have a MRI, Last night was brutal on the hips, I've got to do something, will call for an appt on Monday.  Ides, do the injections work or does it keep coming back?  Thanks.

The injections have worked for me. My body seems to love injected steroids. To date I have had 22 joint injections. It's how my rheumy keeps me functioning.

I've had the bursitis in my shoulder blade and needed medrol to get rid of it.  As for the burning hip pain? Now I had that in both of my hips in the early stages of my RA, before I started the Methotrexate, and the few times I have tried to go off of it, the burning pain returns.  Do you have RA as well?  I'm sorry you are so miserable, I remember that hip pain so well!!
