Slight touch of tendonitis

The latest part of my body that is failing me is my wrist. Apparently there's something called tendonitis.

Tendonitis is inflammation or irritation of a tendon. It causes pain and tenderness just outside a joint, commonly around your shoulders, elbows and knees but can occur in hips, heels and wrists. Happy me.

Rest and medications can reduce the pain and inflammation and make it go away.

The happy end to this story is I but the wrist in a whirlpool bath for about a week and a half (in 1/2 hour increments) and took a few heavy-duty aspirin (prescriptions by a doctor) and the inflammation is 90% reduced.
