2. Pain Around the Joints
Another common symptom of tendonitis and one of the first that is often noticed is pain around the joints. It is important to note that simply having pain in your joints is not a sure sign that you are suffering from tendonitis.
You may have just pulled something while exercising or working and a bit of rest will resolve the issue. If the pain does not go away, there is a chance that you may have something more serious than just a pulled muscle and the tendon may be damaged.
The joints are prone to damage of the tendons more than other parts of the body because the joints are where we bend. If you have engaged in activities that are common causes of tendonitis, such as baseball, tennis, or painting a house, there is reason to suspect that your pain around the joints is caused by tendonitis.
