Hey, MsOuchie! I read typos fluently. LOL I think that is because I make so many myself. I had two shots in my left hip that helped a lot, but that was before I was diagnosed. I almost had the bursa removed from my hip, too. It was SO painful. Then I was Dx with RA, and my RD said no way to the bursa removal. Since she has been treating me, the pain in my left hip has gone form an 8 to a 2. I'm glad I saw her before I scheduled that surgery! I'm seeing an orthopedic doc for my back/hip. He works with my RD and they keep each other informed. I have my MRI next Tuesday morning. The ortho is talking about some sort of epidural type shot in my back. I work with a woman who has those from time to time. She has really bad OA. I have RA and OA, so not sure which is the culprit. Maybe both...??? I see you have Asthma, too. My asthma didn't bother me fore years ( had it as a child ) until my RA flared up big time. They seem to go hand in hand. Will let you know what the MRI says. Take care!
