Bursitis is a painful condition in which one or more bursae become inflamed. The bursae are small sacs of synovial fluid which cushion bones, tendons, and muscles in the joint areas. They promote smooth, frictionless movement of body parts. Though the inflammation of bursae is not a life-threatening condition, it is certainly discomforting and may impede daily functioning. The typical treatment involves resting the affected area and medication. If the problem becomes severe, surgery may be required. To prevent aggravation of the condition, one should be wary of the following symptoms associated with bursitis and take recuperative measures as soon as they occur.

1. Localized Pain

Those with bursitis experience pain in the area where the bursae are inflamed. The most common sites for bursitis are the shoulder, hip, and elbow. The condition may also affect the knees, heels, and shins. The pain in these areas is usually a dull ache which gets exacerbated by the exertion of the related body part. Over-the-counter painkillers can help relieve the pain, which in most cases takes a few weeks to resolve.
