I suffer from repeated trochanteric bursitis in both hips which causes difficulty in sleeping as I cant sleep on my back or front. I am on 200mg of thyroxine a day as well as other +-medication for high blood pressure and irregular heart rythm. I am 52 and 13 stone, 5`4". I drive part time for a living and dont do much excersise as it makes it worse, so i dont know whats causing it except possibly the medication i am on. Sometimes it doesnt trouble me although I can always feel the sore spot on the outside of my hips, on the bone, like a bruise would feel. I have tried Ibuprofen but it doesnt help. To conclude, its worse at night, doesnt bother me much through the day once ive been up a couple of hours. I have a deep memory foam mattress which is immensly comfortable, yet still my hips hurt.I do use a pillow between legs at night. I have lost a stone and am continually losing weight to help it in case thats the cause. Please can you help?
