Symptoms

Symptoms of a tendon injury in the hand or wrist may affect the precise area where the injured tendon is located, or they may radiate out from the affected area. A tendon injury typically gets worse if the affected tendon is not allowed to rest and heal. Too much movement may worsen existing symptoms or bring the pain and stiffness back after improvement.

The following are common symptoms of tendon problems in the hand or wrist:

  • Pain, tenderness, redness, warmth and/or swelling near the injured tendon.
  • Pain may increase with activity.
  • A crunchy sound or feeling when the tendon is used, called crepitus, that usually is painful.
  • Pain and stiffness may be worse during the night or when getting up in the morning.
  • Stiffness in the joint near the affected tendon. Movement or mild exercise of the joint may reduce this stiffness.
