Update to recent post on bursitis. I’ve been back to the GP and the original diagnosis of bursitis was confirmed, a very severe form apparently. The injection has been prescribed. Looking for mums who have had the cortisone injection for bursitis. Did it hurt? How quick was relief? Did your GP inject it or does it need a specialist. TIA

Want more real mum questions sent to you?


Ask your question
  • Can’t say I’ve experienced it personally but i hope you are feeling better now with whatever treatment plan you are now on xx


  • Good to hear you had more issues with the actual injection. Good luck I hope it works out for you.


  • Had the injection two days ago. No issue with the actual injection, which my gp administered. But her it us two days later and no change to the pain levels. Apparently tge injection included anaesthetic, which I thought would reduce pain, but it didn’t. Am hoping it’s going to work, but at least I’ll know what to expsct if I need another one


  • Good luck tomorrow, I hope you get some good relief.


  • My mum had it and said it hurt a lot but the outcome was worth it.


  • My husband has had it also, relief was pretty quick from the pain. The injection sight was sore for a while because I believe they have to be pretty accurate and if they don’t it can hurt a bit more. Definitely worth a small amount of pain for relief from the bursitis though – good luck I am sure you will be fine and feel heaps better afterwards


  • I haven’t but husband has. It hurts but gave good relief in a couple of days. I also worked with a few people who did and the specialist said if it didn’t give relief the injection wasn’t in the right site so you should get good relief but it won’t be instant.


  • Yay! I’m live!! Looking forward to and can’t wait to see MoMs hints and tips and hopefully some advice from those with first hand experience. I’m booked in on 26th march for injection, hoping to gave something from you before then ????
