Tendinitis may cause stiffness in the area around the inflamed tendon. The affected area feels lazy and hard to move, almost numbed. Stiffness is often more intense in the morning or after several hours of sleep. Stretching or motion usually restores movement. If the stiffness persists despite regular movement, the inflammation is likely to be severe. Consult your physician for treatment options.
