What does tendonitis means?
I'm having a but trouble in this question.
tendon + itis = swelling of the tendon
thanks BUT Would you expect tendonitis to be painful? Why?
ok here is my answer
I think tendonitis means swelling of the tendon. Tendon + itis = swelling of the tendon. I would expect tendonitis to be painful because of the meaning of the word.
is that good and correct????
Yes, it's good and correct.
And you're right -- tendonitis is painful.
Thank You! :)
