I too have bursitis in both shoulders, the right more painful than the left. In addition to asprin (which works for me as well as anything else), I found two other useful things. 1. Check handlebar width. If your bars are wider than your shoulder, your shoulders will suffer. The bursa sac is under less stress with arms in straight lines, given the same downward pressure of your body weight. 2. Don't sleep with your arms above your head. This, too can increase the pain. Good luck. I hope you find a solution that works for you.
A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking. - S. Wright
