Kandy, it is so wonderful to hear how well you are doing!!! Unfortunately, the L-glutamine has not helped me. I've had a day, here and there, that seems slightly improved, but overall I'm still in really bad shape. I've been to more doctors and had more cortisone but nothing helps. I can't afford any physical therapy and the doctor doesn't think it will help anyway. Along with the trochanteric bursitis I've been diagnosed with piriformis syndrome. I'm hoping that with more time someday I'll get my life back.
