Tendonitis. Have you ever had it? If so I have ??

Morning moms.
I recently stepped up my exercise. As of last week actually. Well the day after my workout (tuesday) I felt some pain in my knee. Kind of dull, but there. When I went to get down on my knees to pick up DD's toys I felt like screaming. My knee felt incapable of bending. It was tight. Like trying to use a new rubber band. It did NOT want to bend. I almost lost my balance and fell over.

I figured I just over worked it. But here we are a week later and the dull ache has not subsided, getting down on my knees is just as hard and a friend of dh's mentioned I should get x-rays because it may be tendonitis.

For the most part the ache is background noise. But when i've been on my feet for awhile it becomes a deafening scream.

I haven't iced my knee. I know I should have by now, but I have not.

Has any of you ladies had tendonitis in your knee? How did it feel? Did you go to the doc? Has it gotten better?

Thank you

  • I have it chronically in my right ankle, ice it often and go see a doctor soon. try to get Voltaren gel it works great. Your doc can give you an rx for it. Advil and Aleve may help too.

  • No, not in my knee, but I had it in my wrist. Was awful. They prescribed antiinflamatories and various rubs and creams but nothing worked until finally I got to a specialist who injected it with cortisone. That was about 6 years ago and I've had NO pain since. Like a miracle, after it being so very sore for years.

  • Got it from a repetitive motion job, also called tennis elbow. Cortisone injections, pain killers and changed jobs. Every once in a while it will flare up again but pain is manageable.

  • Not in my knee, in my foot but haven't had any trouble with it in a long time. It scares me since mine is in the same spot where I have psoriasis and I am afraid it will get worse as I get older.
