Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
just to clarify do you have this problem before as well and how are you confident and sure that it is bursitis and nothing else ?
This information will help me in answering your question
Thanks for the information
It is possible that you might have bursitis once again as recurrence of bursitis is known to occur. If it is bursitis it will get better by applying ice,taking NSAID like Advil or Motrin and gentle physiotherapy.
The other thing to consider with a painful and swollen joint is a joint infection or septic arthritis. This can not be and should not be treated at home as infection if left untreated can lead to complications .
Another thing to consider is a local skin infection or cellulitis which again require antibiotic to get rid of the infection .
I would suggest that you take Advil or Motrin and get it examined as if it is not bursitis then other possibilities need to be ruled out at the earliest .
Feel free to ask if any more question
