Patient Comments: Tendinitis - Causes

What was the cause, or form, of your tendinitis?

Comment from: Jeannie, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: April 13

I developed tendonitis from late diagnosis and late treatment of Lyme disease. I tried braces, physical therapy, and exercises. It is really bad in one knee, both elbows and both wrists. I have been suffering for a year.

I was diagnosed with tendinitis in the tendon that runs along the outside of my left knee. I was wondering if this was going to be a recurring thing for the rest of my life. I've been out of the military for over 10 years now and it feels like it flairs up from time to time, during storms and if I climb stairs.

Lavoflaxacin. The infection is gone but 2 weeks later the pain of tendinitis in multiple locations lingers on. The pain and fatigue are demoralizing and disabling. Surely there must be another antibiotic that would have done the job without the risk of tendinitis.

I have tendinitis in my wrist caused when gardening. I was using loppers and secateurs for an extended period when cutting down a large shrub. After a visit to a physio at the local hospital I was given an advice sheet with exercises and a splint to immobilise the wrist. Unfortunately it's now 14 weeks since the initial injury and it's not really any better in spite of religiously doing the exercises, wearing the splint and icing the wrist.
