Most physicians have no idea what causes the bone spur. This disease was first thought to exist only in Bone Elementals but, over the years, it has spread to a lot of the elementals that have an internal bone structure. Wood and all forms of Air elementals do not seem to be affected.
When someone is afflicted with the Bone Spur, they start out with the body aching and a bit stiff. However, over the period of several months, they noticed that the parts of their body that are stiff will start having various bone-like structures growing out. As the structures grow out, the skin seals over the bone so that there are no open sores. There is also a numbing that seems to accompany the growth. The growth can be shaved down and there is no pain associated with it. However, the shaving seems to cause the growth to occur at a faster rate. Eventually, the growth will work its way into the brain or a major organ and all functions, other than bone growth, will cease. The person is effectively dead.
