Trochanteric Bursitis


nlualum82

Question

Had to see my HMO doc for my left hip again. This time I was between 2 days I took off because it was so painful to walk.

I have wondered if the pain in my hips, knees, back are related to my 2 SC 10% ratings on my left knee and almost 30 years of compensating. Left knee injury from jeep rollover/degenerative arthritis

Last time the HMO doc examined the hip, he wiggled the leg for about 8 seconds. When I mentioned later about my knee, he said that he didn't detect any arthritis! Reckon he's better than the C & P Doc with his thorough exam and x-rays? Sooo, we know who wouldn't be any help if there was a claim to be made...

Anyone familiar with this condition (or misdiagnosis?).

Nlualum82,

Try WWW.dynomed.com and type in trochanteric bursitis. This site talks about all the things you have mentioned regarding pain in the knee and low back ankle hip, compensational changes and how these things "are" linked together. Also an examination and IMO by a M.D. who specializes in sports medicine and biomechanics would be able to show that a knee injury can cause the arthritis and bursitis problems you are experiencing. Exactly what you need for SC with the VA, I'm not totally sure.. because I'm new to the VA system myself, but others here can lead you through the maze. Hang in there more people will be along to help you.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
