I have been using Myoflex creme and Motrin for the pain. I have also started doing leg raises to the side, back, and front when I shower. It seems to be helping. I haven't had X- rays but the Dr. thought that I probably had bursitis. Also, I have bad arthritis in my feet. I have had an injection of cortisone for that from the orthopedic doctor. You may want to check with an orthopedic doctor to see if the cortisone can be given in the hip. I've had an injection in the shoulder, also.
