I was diagnosed with hip bursitis, on both sides, four years ago. Steroid injections haven't worked at all. Last year I began to have shoulder pain on both sides. Maybe impingement? The GP I saw last year suggested it might be the hot weather but it has continued and, since then, I've just been taking pain killers for both conditions. Some days are not good!
I'm 72 so am quite prepared to accept it's all 'wear and tear' as I have osteoarthritis in quite a few joints anyway. Is anyone else suffering from both conditions - both sides - and, if so, is there likely to be an underlying cause? Or am I just unlucky? Also, is there anything the NHS can do about these conditions? Should I go back to the GP?
