Is itching during bursitis flare up common? I was diagnosed with knee bursitis but have had shoulder and elbow bursitis since, all presented with itching.

In brief: Unlikely diagnosis

Itching is not a symptom of bursitis.
It is unlikely than bursitis is the underlying issue. Fibromyalgia is more likely.
