Answer

Persons with inflammatory syndromes, such as tendonitis and bursitis, usually experience pain during movement and may have local signs of swelling and redness.

Persons with noninflammatory syndromes, such as fibromyalgia, often experience increased pain after movement during periods of rest. The reported sensation of swelling is subjective and not present on physical examination.
