Re: Hip pain at night - while in bed
Just wanted to update all of you as well as express my thanks. I saw my doctor todaly. She is calling this bursitis. She says it isn't really clear WHY this starts happening but if the Tylenol PM doesn't control it she's giving me cortisone shots and she says that usually calms things down again.
I also had blood work done today, a full liver profile, lipid test, etc. I was on Lipitor but she took me off of that because of the muscle pain. My pain sometimes extends into my pelvic area so she thinks that there may be adhesions as well due to a partial hysterectomy (years ago) as well as an appendectomy on the same side (right side). Sure hope the Tylenol PM controls it. Last night was terrible! I had just gotten used to the hot flashes but having the pain on top of it was too much, left me sleepless and teary.
