Pain and Inflammation

Another key indicator that a patient may have osteomyelitis is pain and swelling in the affected area, which may also be accompanied by redness. This pain and swelling is generally present for as long as the infection exists, and it is one of the main reasons patients seek medical treatment.

Pain and inflammation can range from mild to extremely severe discomfort, depending on the severity of the infection, and may require surgery to be eradicated.2‘Osteomyelitis: Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis & Treatments.’ Cleveland Clinic, my.clevelandclinic.org/health/diseases/9495-osteomyelitis
