I too had problems like you. My bursitis went undiagnosed for 6 years (despite treatments by two chiropractors, a physical therapist and two general care practicioners) and got progressively worse and was compunded by fibromyalgia pain and an uneven gait due to muscle deterioration from a stroke that happened 11 years ago. The general care practicioners just chalked it off to arthritis. A physiatrist (sports medicine or also know as a doctor of physical medicine) finally diagnosed it as bursitis. He said bursitis is very hard to diagnose. A new above the knee brace, physical therapy with gait training and a cortisone shot helped immensely. Good luck.
