Hip bursitis - does it make you feel washed out and tired?
I've got OA in hands, feet, knees and shoulders, but my main problem is hip bursitis on both sides. I've had this for about six years and it seems to be getting worse. I've had numerous steroid injections, which did absolutely nothing, also had two appointments with a physiotherapist and six appointments in a hydrotherapy pool (which was wonderful). These were all about four years ago and I've just been coping with paracetamol and codeine since then. The pain forms a girdle around my hips and descends into the bottom of my spine (I know I've got some OA there, too) For the past few months I've felt really tired - just can't be bothered to do very much at all, which isn't like me. Everything is an effort. Would the pain make me feel like this? Is it worth going back to the GP?
