This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Bursitis is caused by the inflammation of the joint sac.
The fluid accumulates causing pain.
Ice application will help a lot.
Over the counter Naproxen can be taken 1 tablet every 8 hours for pain control.
Please avoid any pressure on the painful joints.
Also avoid any long walking.
The better approach will be steroid injection in the bursa to relieve the symptoms faster.
An orthopedic specialist can be consulte with for the injections.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
