Moving pain. Unpleasant pain caused by tendonitis can not only change its intensity but also move around the body. So a patient suffered from pain in his neck discovers that pain can move down the arm or move to the shoulder girdle. Some persons may feel anxiety by reason of such traveling pain, but they do not have essential grounds to be disquieted.
Burning and itching. In some cases, it may happen that the features of other diseases of the patient may affect the destruction of the connective articular tissues. For example, crystals of uric acid form in an organism of people who have gout. Such crystals are deposited on joints and bring irritation and friction, which, in turn, can also be a reason for the inflamed tendonitis. There can arise burning and itching in the area of the joint or the tendon as consequence of such deposition.
Associated with an excessive leap. One of the frequent symptoms of damaged muscle is so called patellar tendonitis. It often happens with athletes or young physically dynamic people. This disease is more known as the “jumper’s knee”. The “jumper’s knee” is the term that means the inflammation of the patellar ligament at the point of attachment to the patella, but an inflammatory process can also occur in the lower part of the ligament, at the point of attachment to the tuberosity of the tibia. Chronic load or even overload of the patellar ligament is one major cause of patellar tendonitis and can lead to the appearance of micro-ruptures, inflammation and, accordingly, pain.
Debility and weakness. The pain and micro-ruptures in the tendons that occur if muscles are damaged inform the body that the person should get recovery and take a break. If there are muscle overloads and excessive injuries, there may arise a weakness that protects the organism from further impairment. It is recommended to stop any physical load on the tendon to prevent the extension of tendonitis.
