those are the symptoms I had years ago. I was told that I had "bursitis" along with "tendonitis". The fluid of the bursitis allowed me to run virtually pain-free through the tendonitis, but it hurt later because the body "now" had to get rid of this excess fluid and heal. I couldn't see any swelling and of course I ran like this for months (where it hurt for about 5 minutes and then it didn't). Eventually, my body couldn't get rid of the fluid and sure enough the knee showed swelling. Then it rapidly progressed with lots of fluid and my doctor refused to "tap" it eventhough I couldn't walk at this point. (good call on the old coot's part, but it was mean at the time) "damn runners, you don't know when to quit, this is going to take 3 months for the swelling to disappear and you'll gain 10 pounds and hate yourself for making your body run"
