Tendonitis

Been to the doctors this morning and he says I have tendonitis, he said he could sign me off work and gave me some exercises. I didn't fancy being off work so I'm still working but if I can't do it I can have a week off with out a doctors note anyway but I don't think I'll need to do that. I'm bored of sitting around already as I have load of things I should be getting on with. Looks like running is off the menu for a while, I'm going to give the Strength and flex programme a spin when I things are working better.

Sorry to hear this - tendonitis sucks. Is this in your leg or wrist?

oh no, that's sucky!

Is it achilles tendonitis? I've suffered with that and found eccentric heel drops very helpful.

Agree with 5korbust these worked for me after a session with the physio. A couple of weeks and she had me slowly running on a treadmill and checked I was running correctly and not leaning or favouring that leg. It will work, i still do my exercises now if I get even the slightest twinge.

It's in my left knee, I got the ice on it at the moment.

It's awfully frustrating isn't it. Been off just over 2 weeks, waiting for mri scan results from Saturday. Still aches if I do too much, ie. Just normal stuff. Keep with the ice and good luck x

Hi, I've had knee tendonitis and housewife s knee for past 5 weeks, that's almost twice as long as the time I was doing the Couch25k! My knee is better in that I can put more weight on it and sometimes feels fine, but other times still painful, especially at night. Started throwing my back out, due to walking funny/ limping too. Started remedial massage last week and it's helping, but she said it could take perhaps another 5 months. Running is out of the question for me in the meantime... good luck with it, I feel for you!
