    What are the symptoms of bursitis in the hip?

    I have also been told that I have bursitis in my left hip.

    Like TK I would like to know what the 'classic' symptoms of this pain are?

    I do not trust my Ortho doc, he is one of those docs that juggles 10 patients at once and tries to get rid of each patient in under 5 minutes. He basically is against an MRI. He did an xray which ruled out a fracture, though this hip pain started after a very severe roller skating fall on concrete ( I also fractured my collarbone lengthwise).

    Can bursitis be caused by a fall?

    Strangely, I have no pain as long as my legs are bent. But when I walk or run I get severe pain, directly under the point of the bone. The area becomes very tender to the touch.

    Does this sound like bursitis? Thank you for your help!

    Re: What are the symptoms of bursitis in the hip?

    well, I just asked my mom....she has bursitis in her left hip as well...

    U would have bursitis if it is onthe left, or top of ur hip... but if the pain is in front of the hip, it is arthritis...

    Her bursitis, wasnt caused by a fall, so she doesnt know if u can get it from falling...

    She is curious.. what medication do you take for ur bursitis? (she wants to try a new med, cuz hers doesnt work 100%, it doesnt work for her all the time)

    Actually my ortho gave me Bextra and 2 other meds from the same family. I haven't taken any of them yet. I just ice it and take ibuprofen. Seems to work eventually. I don't trust the drugs he gave me, they haven't been around long enough to tell the full effects on the body. And I take drugs for Addisson's disease, so I figure I have enough drugs in me for now......
