Does patellar tendonitis show in the MRI ?

I am having knee pain in the front the knee ,between the knee cap and the shin bone. My MRI is normal . Each doctor seems to differ on the diagonis . One says that tendonitis does not appear in the MRI unless there is a tear, and the other says it will appear in the MRI even if there is no tear .

Can tendonitis in the wrists cause numbness or tingling in the hands?

I developed tentonitis in both wrists about a year ago while working as a teamster in a warehouse. It took over a month to heal up, and I have flare-ups on a regular basis because my current job requires me to type all day (I no longer work in the warehouse). I am dealing with the pain as best I can, wearing my custom splints when I don’t have to type, and taking painkillers only when absolutely necessary.

Lately, I’ve been noticing a tingling sensation in my fingers and hands whenever I lean on my elbows, sometimes leading to numbness. Is this from the tendonitis? I have never had this problem before.

I also ride a bike on a regular basis (instead of driving, so I do it a lot) which has caused some pain in my shoulders. I have been told that I need to see a chiropractor, and I plan to. However, I’m wondering what the cause of this tingling is. I cannot pinpoint it to correlating with either the wrist pain or the shoulder pain.

What can I do for chronic tendonitis in my wrists?

I developed tendonitis in both wrists working as a teamster in a warehouse last summer. Most of the time it’s fine, but I work in an office and the typing sometimes upsets it. I also ride my bicycle everywhere rather than driving, and I get pain shooting down my wrists when I ride. I have custom splints but they are too stiff to wear when typing or riding. I prefer not to take ibuprofin or other painkillers any more often than is absolutely necessary.

I plan to see my doctor about this sometime in the next couple of months, but if anyone has any short-term solutions or suggestions, I’d appreciate it. Thanks!

Elbow Tendonitis Healing Time

Has some one experienced elbow tendonitis during pregnancy? If yes how long does it take to be normal?

I never really thought this type of situation would occur when pregnant, but I did.

My wife just got pregnant and also elbow tendonitis during the same time. It just kept getting worse to such a extent that she cant move or fold her elbow. Has some one experienced such a condition?

I’ve just been diagnosed with tendonitis. How can I keep my arm strong while I heal?

I played a little too much tennis and developed tendonitis in my right wrist. The doctor has put me in a rmovable brace to immobilize the area for a wew week, at which time I’ll get physical therapy. However, having my wrist immobilized for a such a long timewill deteriorate the muscle. I’m wondering how I can keep my arm fit without worsening the tendonitis.
