Let me start by saying I'm 44 now and quit playing vball at a young age due to very bad tendonitis. A couple years ago my right knee got extremely sore. The tendons below and above the knee cap we sore to the touch. To the point the pain would radiate into my thigh. It didnt swell much, but was warm to the touch. My doc checked my uric acid levels. They were slightly elevated. She put me on alopurinol and prednisone. The pain came back to my right knee twice since then. Now, this past Sunday,, my left knee got extremely sore. To the point that I cant bend it. 5 days later and I'm at about 50% better. No part of my knee hurts, except the tendons and where they attach to my knee cap. Does this sound like gout or some kind of tendonitis flare up? The pain is almost unbearable if I try to bend my knee. Is this a tendon problem, or am I a gout sufferer in denial?
