In brief: Tendonitis

Unless you've had significant trauma to the area, likely you have tendinitis.
. stretching, exercise, an occasional NSAIID will help in time. Your question does not raise strong concerns of gout, although that is possible, esp if you have swelling and local tenderness.. If you've had trauma, suspect gout, or the symptoms don't ease in a week, please see your Dr.
