Bursitis of the hip.

Hi All

Just wandering if anyone had experienced bursitis alongside their psoriatic arthritis,and if so how they dealt with it. I am on Methotrexate so am unable to take any anti inflammatory medication.

I recently had an X-ray of my hip as it was giving me so much pain. After the results came back normal the doctor concluded that it was actually transference of the pain from my back which is affected by the psoriatic arthritis (spondilitis). I think if I were you I would go back to my GP or rheumatologist for an answer before looking for a pain killer. I believe inflammation is the reason for taking the methotrexate, so what you might need is a reevaluation of your already prescribed medication.
