A week ago I went to my GP because I'd had pain in my right hip for two weeks. She diagnosed trochanteric bursitis, gave me naproxen to take and told me it would get better by itself in a few weeks. Now a week down the line and it's only got worse. Initially I only had pain in my hip when laying on my affected side or upon certain movements. Now I have a constant pain which ranges from a dull ache to a sharp pain to a hot burning pain. I've now got pain down my buttock and thigh. I've tried the naproxen, cocodamol and ice packs but nothing seems to work. I've felt a bit rubbish the past couple of days, sleeping a lot, lack of appetite and mild fever. I'm on my feet for 12 hours at work and I'm really struggling. What do I do?
