Thank you for sharing this link about Hip Bursitis - it has been the most helpful information for me. As soon as I saw the diagram, I could pinpoint the source of my pain, and now I know exactly what my hip pain is - its trochanteric bursitis! And it is apparently very common.
Now I have some ideas of what has caused it for me, I can search further for ways to treat it naturally and reduce the inflammation. Many, many thanks again for the link. I urge everyone to look at it - http://orthoinfo.aaos.org/topic.cfm?topic=a00409
