Can you take Aspirin: The best solution to tendonitis is rest, ice and nsaids (non steroidal anti-inflammatories). Also, if it is on the outside or inside of the elbow it could be characterized as golfer's elbow or tennis elbow and can ebenfit from a brace. There is now NSAID in cream form -- this is called PENNSAID or voltaren; this is available by rx only though.

Ice and nsaids 3, take a good hard look at your program, add stretching and non irritating strengthening to your regimen try to strengthen you r grip and forearm without loading the extended elbow with the wrist fully flexedor raised with resistance 4.
