Doctor insights on:
Piriformis Syndrome Or Hip Bursitis
Less likely: With retroversion of the upper aspect of the femur the piriformis is relaxed during routine ambulation and therefore there is less chance for irritation that would result in symptoms consistent with piriformis syndrome.
I have piriformis syndrome and it has been acting up as I am weaning off of an ssri. The muscles won't stop locking up and my hips hurt again. Help?
Piriformis syndrome: Is usually due to imbalance of your pelvis and altered biomechanics putting constant strain on your piriformis. See an osteopath or a physiatrist or even a podiatrist for another opinion.See 1 more doctor answer
Most exercises okay: Avoid exercises that will cause your legs to cross in any way, even if just a little. This causes tension over the greater trochanter. Also avoid any exercise that causes any increase in pain, as this could suggest increasing inflammation. Stretch your it band and include massage on your lower it band to loosen. Hope this helps!See 1 more doctor answer
We are all different: There isn't any right answer. If you know a good podiatrist or orthopedic they may be able to recommend something specific for you. They can at least tell you terms regarding what your foot tends to do. How much do you pronate? Wide or narrow heel, wide toe box? Armed with that information some on line shoe places have customer comments that rate shoes by customers with the same issues.
Several options: Hip bursitis or inflammation on the outer part of the hip, can be treated successfully with a good stretching program, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (nsaid's) and physical therapy. Occasionally cortisone injections are necessary and can help significantly a medical or orthopaedic evaluation with x-rays often the best place to start.See 1 more doctor answer
?: Septic means caused by a bacterial infection which is quite rare in my experience over the last ~35 years reaular old hip bursitis is pretty common at the greater trochanter where muscles attach at side of hip /if it were septic it would be red/ hot / swollen/ and very painful and it would need prompt medical attention maybe even surgery /the other kind respondes pretty well to cortisone inject.See 1 more doctor answer
Septic hip bursitis: Marked pain redness, swelling, and warmth over the outer aspect of the hip. Can be accompanied by fever. Get medical help right away.
Posssibly: There are many causes of low back pain and hip pain. Often they are related. A bad hip can cause buttock, groin, and/or thigh pain. Sometimes a pinched nerve in the back can cause back, buttock, and thigh pain depending on which nerve is involved. If your pain does not improve or gets worse you should contact your physician to help identify the cause.See 1 more doctor answer
Instantiously!: They missed the spot or have wrong idea as to how to treat you. Bursitis is about alignment of the hip and leg or arm/hand/elbow/shoulder. The best therapy is myofascial tissue release therapy is on a spectrum from simple stretching, yoga, massage, chiro adjustments, john f. Barnes unwinding, hands-on manipulations, acupuncture, gunn-ims, dry needling to finally travell trigger point injections.
Myy back doc told me it coulnt be hip bursitis because II wasnt having pain during the day. My pain is only at night an its not all nights.?
Need exam: Just because it is night or day doesnt tell exactly whats wrong how about getting an exam to see where the pain is ? Obviously if you are tender over the trochanteric bursa - then that's probably the source of your pain. If your back is tender or you have radicular symptoms, then that would need the appropriate treatment for the problem.
Hip bursitis? Pain sleeping on either left/right side but not during the day or activities. Comesand goes. Would like to heal it. Dont want it worse.
Good idea: The best Dr. to see would be an Orthopedic Dr. who trained in diseases of the joints/bones. There may be simple medications, therapy, injections, etc. that can help you meet your goals of recovery. Good luck.
