I too have had bursitis in my right hip for about 6 yrs. I've had shots that don't last. Recently I have tried sleeping on my stomach with most pressure on front of my right leg and it has helped immensely. I can now sleep on my right or left side for a while. Don't know if thats what helped or I've been taking Glucosomine Choindroitn with msm and that may be what has helped as Ive taken this for about a year or more and think that has helped my knee and my arthritis.
