    Just found out results of an MRI yesterday. It turns out I have Bursitis in both hips and Tendonitis in my right. Rheumy gave me a shot of lidocane and cortisone in my hips. It hasn't provided any relief and today I feel like I'm in a flare. Has this happened to anyone else?

    and i do have the same hip problems as help...every joint in my body darn near...was just prescribed a new med for tendonitis, bursisits and arthritis...called sudlindac...seemed to helped better than those darn cortisone shots ...it is a naids....if you have stomach problems it may not be a good choice for you...

    I had those same injections for the same reason as you. I got no relief from them either. A few months later, hips needed replaced. I had one done so far. Another later this year. I hope yours dont get to that point. Take care.

    I had a cortisone shot in hip 4 months ago for my bursitis.Not only did it not provide any relief but i felt worse the first few days.I was scheduled to have a shot in the opposite hip but decided not to since the first one did nothing for me.Good luck

    Hi, I had a shot in my right hip in November and it did work for me! Boy, oh boy did that shot hurt though. My rhuematologist gave it to me. I am scheduled to have one again on Friday. I am not looking forward to it though. This time an anesthesiologist at a Pain Management clinic will do it.
    I have had luck with the shots for bursitis in the shoulder. I hope you have relief soon.
    I have had trigger point injections and they put me into a flare, big time. I guess we just don't know what will help until we try it.
    Hope you are findng relief.
    Take care,
    Cindy

    I have bursitis in my left shoulder. I have had 1 shot in it and it got rid of the pain for about 2 wks, then it came back.
