Yes I did do a search, and see other threads, many of them older.
Yes I do have an appointment with my Doc, a phone consult on Friday.
Dr Google and I are fairly confident that I have developed trochanteric bursitis, given the increasing, and now nearly debilitating pain when taking the stairs, or sleeping, well trying to sleep on it. The soft squishy limp that has come up is also telling.
Now I’m not sure what brought it on, I first noticed it after trying some Showmanship with my boy, and therefore running in the arena. My old, fat, replaced knee self does a ton of walking, but I don’t run!
Seeing as most everything hurts, any tips on living with this, what to do, what not to do, is a couple of miles walking the dogs beneficial or harmful? How about riding, boy has been off, hence the showmanship, but wanted to ride this week, kind of scared it will hurt, have definite visions of not being able to dismount!
Any advice, recovery, stories, tips?
