Tendinitis

Tendinitis occurs when a tendon or the connective tissue around the tendon becomes inflamed. The problem is seen commonly in athletes, computer operators, people who need to reach to perform their jobs like painters and household workers and people who play sports only on the weekends. Tendinitis frequently affects men and women who are middle aged or older, but it also affects younger people if they overdo it.

Symptoms

Symptoms may include pain or tenderness at or near a joint. The pain may be sharp and may get worse if the joint is used. The affected area may be stiff, or you may feel numbness or tingling along with the pain. Swelling may also appear.

Causes

Tendinitis is usually caused by overwork or straining of the body. It can happen when the same motion is repeated over and over. It most frequently is seen affecting the back of the ankles in the Achilles tendons, the shoulders, hips, hamstrings, biceps, forearms, thumbs, elbows, knees and inside the arch of the feet.

Cautions

If the pain gets worse and interferes with normal activities, if your pain has lasted a long time or if your joints are warm, tender and red suggesting an infection, seek medical advice.
