pamelalimlf  Not sure how true but wiki says that there can be positive impingement sign in subacromial bursitis. Aside from the above, is there any other specific symptoms we can look out for to confirm it is subacromial bursitis? (: +1

hayayah  Adhesive capsulitis causes severe restriction of both active and passive range of movement of the glenohumeral joint in all planes (especially external rotation). +24  
catch-22  Adhesive capsulitis is aka "frozen shouder" so you can expect exactly that. The entire shoulder will be hard to move in all directions. +4  
meningitis  Since it says there is NO impingement sign, it cant be rotator cuff tendinitis correct? What other signs eliminate this option? +1

Can anyone explain why bicipital tendonitis is incorrect?

shieldmaiden  Tendonitis from this tendon will have point tenderness on the anterior side of the joint or closer to the coracoid process. Inflammation is usually caused by impingement (@bicipital groove), which it says here there isn't +1

Bursitis tends to cause pain both during movement and at rest (e.g. simply laying on your shoulder is painful), while tendonitis only causes pain while you are actively using the muscle of the inflamed tendon. This expands on @doomarion's comment! Note for both, though, that you can have point tenderness since you are actively putting pressure where there is inflammation...
