    Ok, every time I get my shit together, have a good workout I totaly fuck my joints. I did incline bench a couple of days ago and now have massive painfull bursitis in my shoulder. I also have something kind of similar along my ribs on the left side. So basically I could only take half breaths for 2 days. :mad: When I do heavy squats 1-5 times I'll have bursitis in my hip and can't do shit for a week or two. :mad:

    For now the doctor gave me some steriods and pain medicine. Do they even bother with curing problems anymore? They seem to only treat the symptons.

    Anyone have any thoughts or have problems with this? I'm probably going to see a rheumatoligist, but they will probably only give me pain medication which isn't going to fix the underlying problem that I have about every autoimmune disease there is (colitis, arthritis, asthma, etc).

    I think I'm going to try taking insane amounts of flax and glucosamine.

    Did the doctor say what was causing it? Or attempt to figure it out? Several things cause bursitis, like people that pray alot on their knees often get an inflammed subcutaneous infrapatellar bursa

    I don't think its bursitis on your ribs, *perhaps* if its at your 1st rib, it could be the subacromial bursa, in which case it could relate too whatever your describing in your shoulder

    Went to the doctor. They gave me steriods (not the good kind) and pain medicine. I can't remember what the story is on the ribs. Some sort of tendon pull or seperation of something, dunno. It's the same as usual.

    Ya that's what I was thinking.

    I have a theory that my underlying shit diet is contributing or at least not helping to fix the problem. :dunno:

    After reading your first post, I was going to predict they would give you prednisone. Correct?
