Brief Answer:
course of pain killers

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Were you hurt during your routine?
It is better to get an Xray to check for the involvement of the bones.
Topical creams would not help and since you had already tried them.
Meantime I suggest you to take TAB MOTRIN/ADVIL 200mg thrice a day for two days. Please use caution while taking these medicines if you already have kidney problems or gastritis or acidity issues.

Hope this addresses your concern, let me know if you have questions.

Brief Answer:
Bursitis improves with ADVIL

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Bursitis improves with steroid course but the painful movement would can be eased with MOTRIN.
Bursitis can be diagnosed on clinical examination and during the same time a course of steroids would help for quick recovery and movements.
I suggest you should meet a Orthopedic surgeon.
Let me know his opinion after examination.
