try some otc NSAID's like alieve (naproxin sodium)...take like 2-4 a day...but be careful cuz too much for too long can do some damage to the kidney's as well as reduce protein synthesis...
you could also try the joint supps like glucosamine, chondrotine, and MSM which you can get at AR's home-page supp. store...the joint supps. can take a while to start taking effect but it goes to the root of the problem...
also...ice and heat after you workout for 10 minutes a piece...you could also try Adequan if it's cartilage damage...but even if it's not...and your desperate...you can spend $50 for pretty good anti-inflam. effects...
Pentosan is more for tendonitis...but I can't find it for the life of me!
And if it's in your elbow...you might want to strengthen it up by upping your forearm work...it'll strengthen the muscles that support the connective tissue so there will be less stress on it...most of this stuff your doctor would tell you besides the adequan or pentosan...if you can get script anti-inflam's they're better and easier on your system from I understand from my doc...hope this helps...

Are you sure it's Tendonitis?
See a Doc certainly, but I live with numerous differrent Joints issues, I take Glucosomine, Shark Cartilidge, etc etc, and I am prescribed Feldene, an strong Anti-Inflamitory.
Also, you'll like this one, I use an old Liniment used for Horses, Absorbine. It's a topical Analgesic made mainly from just Menthol and Alcohol, but it's great for Per-Workout, and Post Workout Set up Wraps.
There was a Thread started by someone (on another board) about 8-10 months ago, about this Miracle Shot that Vets have for Large animals or something. The guy went on to say that on the day of his first shot, he couldn't put his arm up to the wheel to drive....four day later he's benching...yeah. I can't remember the name of the Drug, and I saved it at the time, but I've since Crashed and replaced my Hard Drive.
Anybody else read/remember that thread?

my anti inflam of choice is vioxx...i also have a prescription for nabumetone and that does the trick nicely in a pinch.
you can't just take 5 days off and expect it to go away bro, you need to develop a new training schedule that incorporates high repetition and lower weight at first until you get comfortable training again.
my biggest mistake at first was doing what you did...thinking some time off would cure it when in reality it would come back worse.
i would evaluate your goals and then go from there.
