Bursitis

Symptoms can vary from an achy pain and stiffness to the local area of the joint, to a burning that surrounds the whole joint around the inflamed bursa. With this condition, the pain is usually worse during and after activity, and the bursa and surrounding joint area can become stiffer the following day.

The most common tendon areas that become inflamed are the elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle, and heel. Of course, bursitis can will vary with each person, as it strikes the areas you use and irritate the most.
