I know this sucks! Currently dealing with a flare up due to running a race in new snow earlier int the week. Guess the extra slipping around added extra stress. Had to abandon a run half way through yesterday and walk it out. Getting up and down the stairs is hurting today.
Wish i had a real solution. I thought i had it kicked after not suffering for several months, oter than occasional twinges. Saw an ortho who just suggested Vitamin I (ibuprofen) before longer runs, and after runs + stretching. Not a great solution. But hate been working with a great osteopath/athletic therapist who deems it due to inactive glutes from sitting all day. Did lots of work on that to activate glute max and med - donkey kicks, clam shells, and squats - and it was truly getting better. The day I actually felt the glutes kick in and power the run - or hurt the day after - was cause for celebration!

I have had it and it is debilitating. Hopefully you are just sore. I got it in my left arm and it took almost a year to fully go away. Acupuncture is what did it for me... and lots of advil.

I would rest a few days and if it goes away, then probably just doing too much too soon. Hoping anyway! If so, then start up again but much slower.

Thanks for all the advice. I am resting it for now. If it persists I will see a doctor!

Could be so many things..... maybe just shoes.

I would ease into exercise and see what happens.
I agree - seeing a doctor may be a good choice.

Do take a rest and start more slowly again
If you have pain again, go to the doctor.
I started slowly and patiently and strengthened my way back to running regularly.
But it took patience because cardio fitness increases quickly and joint and muscle strength more slowly.

I cannot respond to bursitis, per se, but pain is an indicator you are doing too much too soon. Rest for 2 to 3 days, ice on and off during this time, and do range of motion movement to loosen the area.

I have had hip pain for many years because of an imbalance, and I have learned that strengthening the core, doing range of motion movement every day and stopping at the first hint of pain is key.

I use icy-hot when stiff, and I use Arnica gel morning, after exercise and night. It is my best friend.

Over the months and years, my hip pain is more a nagging pain than anything now. It used to be debilitating.

Don't let this episode discourage you, just readjust your plans and make room for this challenge. You are doing a really good thing for your health and wellness.

Hi... I just joined spark people last week and was easing back into regular exercise by waking on the treadmill. Yesterday my left hip(on the side) was very painful and is again today....
Doing a google research I think I have a case of bursitis? Has any one had it? What did you do to heal it? It bums me out because I am feeling really motivated to move more, get back into run/walking and get some of this weight off.
