Causes Chronic Bursitis Tendonitis Tendinosis Lupus
Can Lupus cause Achiles Tendonitis or Retrocalcaneal Bursitis, Runner's or Jumper's knee, or Cubital Tunnel Sydrome?
Autoimmune diseases: Autoimmune diseases can sometimes be associated with inflammatory joints and result in laxity. This can can create instability and can create abnormal pull/strain in some muscles - particularly those that are responsible for balance.
I'm 50 with chronic bursitis in both hips. I've had injections, taken meds and tried chiro. Would mobility aids at times help?
You need strong PT: Your best approach is a strong physicial therapy program. Have your phsician send you to a rheumatologist and also have you start a very active physicial therapy program. This is trochanteric bursitis
Have been diagnosed with a left shoulder impingment and chronic bursitis. Is arthriscopic surgery the only remedy? If so is it common?
Have lupus had severe pain and burning starting from hip down to my ankle. Had an X-ray didn't show anything. Doc said it might be tendonitis on hip
Sciatica: Sle causes many problems. One of these is muscle pain as well as nerve pain. Usually when you have pain from the buttocks to the feet this is indicative of a pinched nerve in the lower back possible due to spurs or over activity. I would recommend an MRI of the lower back and possibly are your pcp and pt to help with treatment options. Even a podiatrist can help. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
I have bursitis and patellar tendinitis. Got injected with cortisone for the bursitis. Should I have pain only in the tendons now? Because I don't.
See a Physician: Before taking any medications in combination, you should discuss the problem, the treatments, the expected outcomes and what is the best method to address your symptoms.
Can you tell me how is impingement syndrome different from shoulder bursitis and rotator cuff tendinitis?
See details: An impingement is secondary to arthritic narrowing the joint and is not caused by inflammation or bursa or tendons.
From a radiology: Standpoint it is simple. An MRI will easily distinguish between those three abnormalities.
I have bursitis and patellar tendinitis. Got injected with cortisone, now I feel better. Does this mean I can go back to playing soccer intensely?
I have recently been diagnosed with tendinitis/bursitis in hip and shoulder. I have pain in various parts of my body when sleeping. What's happening?
Left shoulder pain for 4mos after car accident. Ortho says it's rotatorcuf tendinitis&bursitis but chiro. Says it might be something more. Wht cud it be?
?? confused: I'm confused. You say Ortho told you what it was? But you're asking what it could be??? Why don't you believe him/her? Is it not responding to the recommended treatment? If not, maybe see another Ortho for a second opinion. (chiros aren't real doctors) If they both agree you are probably in good hands.See 1 more doctor answer
Inflammation: A bursa is a pocket of fluid that provides a buffer between muscle and bone. Inflammation of the bursa either from overuse or injury can lead to bursitis. A tendon attaches muscle to bone. Inflammation of the tendon either from overuse or injury can lead to tendonitis.See 1 more doctor answer
I will get cortisone for frozen shoulder friday. It will be guided into the joint. Will it also help with my impingement/tendinitis/bursitis?
Hard to say...: All of the conditions that you mentioned are distinctly different from one another. A frozen shoulder would not typically be treated with steroid injections. Usually, physical therapy or manipulation under anesthesia (basically, wrenching your frozen shoulder loose while you're sedated) is necessary to treat this. Some impingement caused by bursitis or tendinitis is improved with steroid shots.
I have Lupus and just got bursitis in my shoulder. If I got a kenalog (triamcinolone) shot in my arm yesterday, is it okay for me to get a tattoo on my foot today?
I don't know why not: I think it should be ok. The steroid injection should not cause you to be more susceptible to infection with a tattoo. Make sure who ever does your tattoo has not had issues with infections.

Dr. David trettin, thank you for your reply. I do have tendinosis (not tendinitis). Can you describe the exercises by the doctor you recommended?
'google' super 7: Working right now! Sorry. Google super7 exercises and look for description by therapist tim uhl. They are described well and a diagram of each..
Tendinosis vs. Tendi: Tendinosis is at more adcanced stage. It means that the tendon starts to lose its integrity, even starts to tear off. Tendinitis means inflammation of the tendon. It's a lot easier to treat.
Usually not: "tennis elbow" which is tendonosis of the lateral or outside of the elbow (the most common "tendonitis" of the elbow) usually doesn't cause any numbness in the hand or fingers medial elbow tendonosis (golfers elbow) will occasionally irritate the ulnar nerve about the elbow and cause some numbness in the ring and small fingers.See 1 more doctor answer
