I'm having to add to the list of pain issues. A few days ago, my hip started to bother me, pain me, just below the side bone of the hip at the top of the femur. It got progressively worse, to the point that I could not lift my leg, could not move it side to side, had to limp, had to lean when sitting. Woke me during the night. Kept me from driving myself anywhere.
My neighbor drove me to the Urgent Care and they x-ray'd it...negative. Diagnosis...bursitis or inflammation of the iliotibial band...recommend follow up with ortho. Treatment...prednisone.
Finally after 3 days it's calming down. I'll have to make an ortho appointment this coming week.
Just one more thing on my ever growing list. Another area affected by bursitis. Ugh.
