I am 30 years old and have MS. For YEARS I have been told my pain in my left hip lower back and left leg are due to sciatica however I have been in PT for months and was told 2 weeks ago that I have bursitis. I have never had an MRI of my spine (other than cervical) to prove I have sciatica. I have also never heard of bursitis. The pain is debilitating at times and I get to a point that I cannot move my leg or turn my body. I have been given steroids (for assumed nerve/disk issue) for years that do help but cause me to feel starved and I gain 10lb each time and cause me to get flu-type sick everytime. I do drop the weight after taking them. But the pain comes right back. Unfortunately, I have been on steroids so many times I'm no longer permitted to take them. I have been icing the areas for years on and off as well as heat with very little relief. I am not overweight and I am active (not sports but garden, work full time, and take care of my household, and like to be outside walking around) i take 800mg of motrin at least 4 times a day, I have been laid up for days and then "taken it easy" for days after a "flair"? It started as a once every few months lasting a few days issue and over the course of 6 years has turned to a daily issue for months with only days of relief in between. After starting PT I have had 4 good days, admittedly better than before, but it just comes back with a vengeance even with advised stretches at home. Does this actually sounds like bursitis, and if so, what should I be doing. Any help, or thoughts are much appreciated. My PT just told me to keep doing the stretches and ice. I do, however it is still an unbearable amount of pain most of the time.
