Hi Laura, I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I too know the horrible pain of bursitis. If you haven't already, you might want to check out the following listing on this forum. There are alot of helpful info & things NOT to do (surgery!) http://www.healthlinkusa.com/forum.fwx?start=0&thread=131853&number=1 My part of the messages starts on #17. If you have any questions you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . (I won't be back on the computor til next week.) Has anyone else tried L-glutamine yet?
