Hip Bursitis

I was diagnosed with hip bursitis many years ago and have always been able to control it with anti-inflammatories when it flares up.
Lately however, I have tremendous pain every night, and the only thing that gives relief is applying an ice pack at bedtime.
I find it puzzling that I do not experience any pain whilst active, even when sitting, but unbearable pain when lying down,
Can you please advise on possible home treatment options.
Thank you

Hallo Lizelle
This is typically the symptoms of bursitis. You may need to get some physiotherapy treatment or even a cortisone injection into the joint - this will usually be done by an orthopedic surgeon.
