    Default Filing Claim for Tendonitis

    My husband's left forearm has become swollen and tender when a certain amount of pressure is applied. I told him that it looks like he has tendonitis. We are in the process of getting him an appoinment with his family doctor. He works in a machine shop 53-56 hrs. a week and has been there for 11 years.

    My question is, should he tell his employer about his arm and that it might be tendonitis which is work related -OR- stay quiet until he is seen by his physician and then the physician can file it as such?

    wait for a physician to relate his condition to his work.
