Hi guys, I've recently been diagnosed with trochanteric bursitis with a possible gluteal tear? I've been practically bed bound for the last year but feel I've had these symptoms for a few years that were missed because I also have a failed fusion and sijd and the pain was always put down to that. It's been hell! My physio called me yesterday and told me I have Cartlidge changes in my hip and soft tissue damage, he couldn't say anymore as he's not a radiologist but it was to reassure me I wasn't going insane (I swear I started to think it was in my head and I was going mad) I've now been referred to a hip specialist who deals with young females hips, I'm 48. Has anyone got any advice on how to slow these changes down and help with the pain😞 I have a burning pain that starts from under my ribs around the crest bone, groin, butt, hip😬😬😬 I'm going out of my mind it's affecting my mental health as well as my physical😪
