Pain over greater: The symptom of hip bursitis is usually over the greater trochanteric region or on outside of the upper leg. One may have some pain radiating down the outer part of the leg to the knee. Also, when one lays on the affected side, it may be uncomfortable. Best treatment is exercise, aspercreme to the area, or NSAIDS. If they do not work a cortisone shot may be of benefit.
