Bursitis: Bursitis is inflammation of the bursa. Overtime it becomes thick walled and remains painful. One can have recurrent attacks of acute flare ups. It can get infected and this can make urgent surgical excision or I&D necessary.

Chronic pain: Chronic bursitis can lead to chronic pain and potentially loss of motion of a joint secondary to bursitis causing pain and limiting the motion of a joint.
