2. What are the signs of tenosynovitis?

The most common sign of tendon sheath inflammation is recurring flashes of pain in the affected area. Initially, you may only feel pain is when there is pressure on the tendon. As tenosynovitis advances, however, the area may begin to hurt when at rest, as well. Other symptoms include joint stiffness, swelling, pain, tenderness, and redness of the skin.
