Swelling is common with bursitis. It mostly occurs a day or two after the pain begins. Most people develop low-intensity pain in the affected area, but many ignore it at first. This means they do not rest the area or stop carrying out the activities that caused the problem, which can make inflammation worse until eventually, swelling is visible.
