If you have pain in your hip or hips, you may be suffering from a condition called hip bursitis. Hip bursitis occurs when the small fluid-filled sac, called a bursa, becomes inflamed and irritated on the outside or inner part of your hip. Hip bursitis causes pain, decreased strength, and difficulty with movements like walking or running.
