Re: Ischial Bursitis/Weavers Bottom
The most recent outburst was triggered by just 3 or 4 hours on an ATV. I had ridden it much harder at other times, but for some reason this seemed to start it up again. I had the shots on Thursday, too soon to tell yet. The shots themselves leave a little ache that takes a few days to clear up. I spoke with the doctor about a cyst or bone spur and he said a cyst would probably have been obvious by exam and a bone spur is very rare on this bone. So he's not recommending any MRI/Xray, but he did say if this shot didn't work we could do one.
None of the over the counter meds helped me. Gabapenten (aka Neurontin) reduced the pain by more than half, but during the 6 months I was on it I gained 20 lbs because it made me hungry all the time (which I'm still trying to lose so I don't recommend it).
