I am 64 years old and have tendinitis in my

I am 64 years old and have tendinitis in my left elbow from walking with crutches for 50 years. I was born with paraplegic Cerebral Palsy and never let it stop me from doing what I wanted to do. All my doctors want me walking again. Maybe on a limited basis, but I use a wheelchair outside the house now That left elbow is really painful. I find exercise helps. I work on the point where it hurts, slowly. If I don't, my arm gets weak quickly. All the info says to stop and rest. Am I hurting myself by exercising every other day and working on the sore points along with the whole arm?

Hi, I am suffering lately of tendinites.I was recommended to do streches twicw a day, but this already taking too long. I am on vacation and since I left my home, in February my Aquiles tendon hurts. I am walking with a cane, but walking for me is very painful. I can not take cortizone medications. Right now I am taking Turmeric tablets, which Imwas told is an anti inflammatory remedy besides being natural. I am 74 years old and a few years ago had a surgery in my shoulder due to a Tendinite Calcarea. I am concerned with my ankle. Are the strexhs good? Or should I immobilize. I appreciate your attention to this matter. Renata

My 36 year old son is a certified master bicycle mechanic and over especially the past two years has developed worsening tendonitis in both his hands, to the point where his hands during rest will automatically clench into a fist and they are very painful and tingling. With his hands outstretched, they look very strange and the tendons are quite pronounced and he has to stretch out his hands frequently to be able to just move them. He is very good at what he does, but his passion and love for bicycles is hurting him and I am concerned that as he becomes older, this condition may worsen. Thank You.

A year ago November, I fell and badly sprained my right ankle. I was diagnosed with posterior tibial tendonitis , and followed the prescribed treatment. Also when I fell, the doctors told me that there was an old break on my ankle. I now have a dent in my right ankle. My left ankle looks fine, but my right ankle looks like there is something pushing it in. Should I be concerned? The ankle still gives me trouble, but always feels better after it pops . I am 40 years old, female.
