My dad had bursitis in his shoulders and I know how much that hurt him, so I can only imagine what this condition must be like. Ouch!
My husband also has a touch of bursitis in his shoulder and says ice really helps it. Fortunately, he can take pain relievers like Naprox, so that helps reduce the inflammation. I would hope people with this condition could also take NSAIDs to relieve pain.
The article says the condition is not serious. Hmm. I have to wonder if someone who has it would say it isn't serious. It might not lead to other conditions, but anything that hurts where you sit is serious, in my opinion.
