Pain: Pain, swelling, inability to move a particular muscle or moving it but not thru full range of motion. Tendons can be completely torn but don't have to. Sometimes they are partially torn and sometimes they can have longitudinal tears. The different types of tears will be treated differently.
Dr. Jeffrey Wint
Hand Surgery 35 years experience
Depends upon: Where it is but pain, loss of motions, decreased power, swelling, balck and blue are all suspect for an acute tear. A chronic tear may feel different and just show up as swollen tissue followed by a change in motion that may not be noted right away, if one suspects a tron or ruptured tendon it is importnat to seek treatment as acute repair may be indicated and it may not be even a few week s later

Torn tendon edges pull apart very quickly, so quick repair is the way to go.
