To young to have bursitis.

When ever I hear word Bursits I think of an elderly women in pain. I never thought this was something a 30 something could get.

It started about two months ago. I would wake up in the am and my hips would hurt. Through out the day they felt better. Now I wake up and my right hip is immediately screaming at me to lay back down......but I can't I have a 6 year old to get off to school. I have read up on it and I can't pin point the cause. None of the causes listed apply to me. I wonder if it's possible to get bursitis from sleeping on your side too much.
At this point all I can say is OUCH!!!!! This is painful really painful.

Anyone out there who can shed some light on this for me?

I think sleeping can be a huge pain on the body.  I believe my bad rotator cuff came from sleeping on my side.

 Sorry I don't know anything about bursitis but I do think sleeping in one position can cause problems.

I had bursitis in my shoulder when I was about 22, so it is not an old person thing at all.  But that does not sound like bursitis at all.  Have you tried sleeping with a pillow between your legs if you sleep on your side?  That will keep your back straight and prevent the awkward position on your hips.

Besides that if I were you, I would go see a doctor who could probably prescribe some physical therapy.

Welcome. My mom got bursitis in her 30's as well, though in her elbow. I know it's caused by repetitive action. I'd certainly go see your Dr. You'll need treatment anyhow; furthermore, as you say, your symptoms don't seem to apply to you. Let us know.

Funny, 'cause my mom had it in her 30s, and a friend had it in her 20s.

It's just inflammation --which even little kids can have, depending on their diets, lifestyles and individual bodies.

Yes, it is possible to get from lying on one side too much.

I do alternate from side to side and occasionally on my back and I have slept with a pillow between my knees since my 20s. I did go to the dr cause the pain was so bad I thought something was really wrong. He did a X-ray which came back normal. Physical therapy is up next.
Well thanks for the responses I suppose I should have done some reading before I assumed it was and older persons issue..

I will stick with ice and PT for now.
Thanks for your time ladies.

Try sleeping with a pillow between your legs to keep your hips in alignment while you sleep.
