If I think I might have torn a tendon, the first guy I'm going to see is a physician. The last thing I'm going to do is get advice from the internet. Why? I think that's what any reasonably intelligent person does. Soreness is a different matter.
These forums are here for sharing experiences, not so much for giving professional advice that requires a face-to-face visit.
If I get on the internet and someone basically tells me in a roundabout way that: "I think you might be dumb enough to have a severe injury and ask for unqualified random advice instead of seeing a professional...", then I might be offended by that.
