It was very painful outside of knee. This is 3 years after bilateral knee replacements. I was diagnosed with calcific bursitis after x-ray.

Discomfort when lying on my right side and pressure feeling in my right leg when climbing stairs were the first symptoms of calcific bursitis I noticed. I took painkillers but discomfort came back. I am waiting for results of ultrasound to discuss treatment with doctor.

I slipped on a wet wooden floor and injured my left hip area. My doctor ordered an x-ray for my hip and a CAT scan. The x-ray showed calcification and a fibroid. Now the doctor has ordered an ultrasound of the pelvic area and left hip. I'm past menopause. I wonder what caused the calcific bursitis.

Recently, my right shoulder started hurting. It is more of an achy feeling, especially in my right arm when I’m sleeping. I can’t lie on my right side. I’m wondering if it might be arthritis or bursitis.
