How common is widespread bursitis and tendonitis?

Postby Genevieve489 » Sun Dec 13, 2015 12:29 pm

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in March. I've had bursitis in both hips for two years now. In the past few months, my shoulders have become painful when pressed in a certain spot and they ache. I wonder if that is more bursitis? I will be seeing the GP about it shortly. I'm going for a scan next week on my Achilles tendon as it is very sore and I have a lump half-way up the tendon. I have also had trigger thumb twice in one hand - which is another form of tendonitis - and which responded to steroid injections.

So, apart from the FM, I'm in a lot of discomfort and I'm wondering if there is an underlying cause for these flare-ups. Has anybody else developed wide-ranging bursitis and tendonitis with no obvious cause? Maybe it's an age-related thing? I'm 69.

During my time on here, there have been a number of mentions of Bursitis and Tendonitis, but not about how commonly they occur, either separately or together. And when searching for the 2 together, less than a dozen references come up across the entire history of the forum.

If you want to have a read of the posts/topics, use the search box at the top of each page and see what it comes up with.
