I had an xray in March because of hip pain but was told that I had normal wear and tear - nothing to worry about. It became worse and I saw a nurse at the surgery (getting a GP appointment is very rare). He said that I had bursitis and made an appointment with a physiotherapist at the surgery for a steroid injection.
I was very unsure about this as I had a form of non-contagious TB (NTM) which feeds on steroids. Luckily she examined me very carefully and said it was a problem with my glute muscle, not my bursa. She recommended that I pay for a private physio which I have done.
I have read up on the causes and inactivity and sitting too much was probably the cause of mine. I was in lockdown during Covid and so didn't get as much exercise as usual.
Any advice from wise grans please? Coming downstairs in the morning is an adventure!
