Question: Had a left side hip Busitis over 8 weeks ago., I was advised to Rest and not do any major activities and let it heal on its own.. Now I have started getting bad back pains as well, I have read That sometimes your Gait changes when
walking and could have been brought on by the hip being affected

Any ideas Thanks XXXXXXX

Brief Answer:
You need muscle strengthening exercises

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for posting
I have gone through your query carefully the backache looks to be because of rest for long time along with bursitis at hip.
In bursitis at hip, the normal gait changes to Trendlenberg gait that is sideways tilting of back that leads to excessive stress on back muscle. This occurs because of Inflammation at muscle attachment supporting the pelvis.
For your backache my suggestion would be -hot water fomentation
-Pain killer like Ibuprofen along with muscle relaxant drugs (prescription only) Thiocolchicoside.
Hope this suffices and I shall be glad to answer any further query.
Take care

The back pains are a 24 hour thing now., Physcial therapy would help to strengthen the hip muscles taking pressure off the Back ?

As soon as This hip Burstis started The back pain came with it
I recieved a steriod injection, And I was ok for a few weeks, when the shot wear off the back pain started up and came back more intense, I would also have outer pain in my hip when I would walk in general. So it makes sense that the pain started when the hip became inflamed .

I will consult a Physical therapist and start training

I am a 42 year old healthy female that eats right, excercises regularly and doesn t smoke. In 2008 I had a manometry at the Cleveland Clinic after suffering significant chest pain once every couple months after the birth of my second child. I was diagnosed with Nutracker Esophagus. Everything I read states it does not progress, however, I am living proof that I have had episodes occuring much more regularly over the past couple months. They have been occuring as close as 2-4 x a week and lasting up to 3 days in total. There is no rhyme or reason as to what I do, eat or the amount of stress I am under when the episodes occur. I had another EGD at the Clinic 4 days ago and nothing has really changed in the appearance of my esophagus. I do not have trouble swallowing or have any food flowing back up, just severe pain which ends up extending through my arms, neck and turns into a headache during each episode. I am in such severe pain with these episodes that I m wandering what can help me and what is causing this. The doctors said that Ibuprofen will not work, but again, it has worked occassionally with the pain. I am seeing a specialist, same doctor who did my manometry, on this Tuesday who may put me on muscle relaxers or something...but what if that doesn t help? And...how do I know for sure there isn t something else going on here?

I was sunburned 1 week ago tomorrow severely on both of my legs and the top of my feet. The swelling has subsided but every time I stand my feet turn purple and hurt terribly. I am using silvadene cream, ibuprofen, elevating my feet and cold compresses and the pain is still there. Is there any more I can do?

I was circumcised this morning and I'm terrified of going to bed. Is there anything I can do to take the edge off the pain?I've taken some painkillers (2x50mg paracetamol, 40mg ibuprofen and some codeine phosphate tablets) and read about wearing tighter, more supportive bedclothes.For further information, I just took the dressing off from around my penis and there was a fair bit of blood from near one of the stitches. Half an hour or so with some tissue paper and reasonable pressure has stopped the flow, but I worry that if (or, more likely, when) I get an erection in my sleep, it might start to bleed again.

i have routine blood work done yearly and last month my GFR came back 59, HCT 31, nml w/ cr 1.0. i have markers for sjogrens, not clinical diagnosis, chol 203, hdl 54, ldl 110 triglycerides 88 and BP is 110/70 s ballpark average, microprotein 44 in urine from 4 last sept. i have no other healthproblems. repeat GFR 58, HCT 37 bun/cr same, chol level same but CO2 20, and microprotein is down to 8 in urine (cut protein down to minimum..i was big protein eater). i am worried about GFR. only thing i can think of that could have caused this is taking ibuprofen/benadryl during a 3 week period when i broke my rib prior to having labs drawn..and i took the ibuprofen regularly. i drink lots of water always. also since feb, i have increased exercise phenomenally. is it possible to turn this GFR around? and how quick does kidney failure take? am i on a downward spiral? i have next appt w/ Primary doc in 1 month, am repeating labs til then. what can i do that i am not doing to retard/repair circumstances? is it permanent damage?..
