Varying levels of pain intensity is one of this condition’s characteristics. Doctors differentiate between bursitis of the hip in its acute and common forms. The pain tends to flare up and later decrease in intensity in the acute version of the illness. A typical flare-up might last a few hours, but it could also continue for many days. If this person is unfortunate enough to hurt their hip while in this condition, bursitis can become chronic with severe swelling and pain peaks that might last many weeks.
