I have had RA for 10years now and it is successfully controlled by taking hydroxychloroquine and methotrexate. I have recently been diagnosed as having bursitis in my hip which is nothing short of agony. MY GP has prescribed diclofenac and rest as the only way to get over it. I wondered if there is a link between the RA and the bursitis - I haven't injured myself but am used to walking the dog twice a day and doing a couple of moderate gym sessions a week. Giving up this level of activity is misery for me.
In short - are the two conditions linked in any way and is there anything else I can do to alleviate the symptoms. I am also feeling 'wiped out' with the pain etc.
