Multiple tendonitis throughout body

Posted , 13 users are following.

So I recently got back from my rheomotologst and they said all my blood work for autoimmune and disease were negative . I'm getting more and more frustrated being that they are unable to find what is causing my multiple tendon breakdown. Anyone got any ideas what could be causing it ?

    I’ve done extreme fitness for years. 

    I’ve had tendon injury in my ankle, finger, patellar region, elbow, and shoulder. 

    Rheumatology results also negative. No cancer

    I think my stress grew as my injuries expanded. This caused my muscles to contract tightly and my whole body hurt.

    The extra load my tendons were under, along with years of overuse, I think made them more susceptible to injury. 

    It’s taken many months of slow rehab, meditation, vitamins to get back to a decent place.

    The moment I stopped obsessing about my pain the injuries stopped. However, these tendons heal very slow and they may never be the same, so just have to adapt.

    Not sure of your age or your experiences that led up to ur injuries.

    There may be a genetic component ... dehydration of tendons .. who really knows I guess.

      I'm going to check for magnesium deficiency and you should too . It's known to cause cipro like damage to tendons

      I've had a very similar experience! I have also found the same things to be helpful. I use cognitive-behavior therapy, meditation and visualization to decrease my stress over the pain itself plus physical therapy and slow increases in activities I enjoy. This is the best formula I have found although I still have times of more pain and limitations. Some weeks I am able to hike up mountains, dance, bike and hit the gym. It requires a LOT of planning and self-care to manage for the long-term.

    Have u been on any fluoroqiunolone type antibiotics lately? Look up which specific antobiotics are in this class. They are known for causing tendonitis and tendon ruptures. If u were, u need to talk to eiyher your pharmacist or your doctor to see if there is anything you can do to relieve the symptoms.

    One thing we all have in common is we love sports and fitness.

    Every time you contract a muscle you use up calcium and magnesium loosens and relaxes the muscle.

    Repetition , especially us adventure types, use up our CA and MG like crazy. 

    We tend to eat a lot of dairy and in multi vitamins exist a lot of CA.

    Replenish your MG!!!

    Antibiotics may cause a tendon to weaken and rupture , but that’s not a full body cause, unless your on them constantly, which none of us are.

    Hello everyone,

    I have the same problem here.

    I don’t have time to rehab one tendon pain that I get a couple more in other places.

    I have have tendon pains in awkward places like eyes and diaphragma or rib cage on top of the usual (achilles tibialis shoulder)

    Has anyone found a miracle solution ?

    I have learnt a lot with Ebony Rio, she’s a great tendon an expert, You can check out interviews on YouTube or Podcasts. I thought it might help some of you here.

    Personally I’m very disabled.

    Sometimes I manage to strengthen my muscles and I have less pain but sometimes I have horrible breakdowns and it’s like a snowball effect : I get one new tendinopathy that lead to 2 others in the next couple of months etc.

    If anyone has managed full recovery please share your experience !

    Personally I’ve been dealing with this pb for over 10 years.

    Hold on everyone !

    PS : For me resistance streching helps too. (RFST method by Bob Cooley ) but You have to find a good practitioner.

    I have same problem here, developed tendinosis in all major joints (knees, hips, elbows, wrists, and now the neck) in two years. Rheumatologists don't think I have autoimmune diseases because all blood work came back negative. I tried some physical therapies. They only caused more pain. I am very frustrated and don't know what to do.... I am glad I find this discussion. Any ideas or suggestions?
