Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

Just this weekend.

Have a chronic upper back problem from a rollover accident when I was 17. Also was itinerant teacher and hauled my teaching materials to each school leaving me with bursitis in my right hip. I have just had an injection of cortizone in that hip. the pain started after that.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
