How long does it usually take to heal tendinitis in the shoulder?

4-6 weeks

Rest
Typical treatments for shoulder tendinitis include use of anti-inflammatory medicines, rest of the joint, and possibly physical therapy. Avoiding the repetitive movement that led to the condition is most helpful. If these conservative measures fail, then a cortisone injection may help.

Shoulder tendinitis is a vague diagnosis. Shoulder pain in young people can be related to many different things such as shoulder instability, biceps tendinosis, rotator cuff tendinosis or tears and SLAP lesions. While shoulder tendinitis in young people generally resolves with conservative care it can also progress and worsen depending on the actual diagnosis.

How long does shoulder tendinitis usually last?

Variable

So-called shoulder tendinitis can actually be one of a few things and specifically tendinitis of the biceps tendon or possibly bursitis, arthritis, rotator cuff pathology etc.. Initial treatment is usually but not always REST along with NSAIDs and hot/cold and massage. No matter the exact pathology it's important to keep the shoulder moving at least a bit to avoid a Frozen Shoulder.

Can tendinitis in the shoulder affect and create nerve issues and the arm?

No

Massage
Tendinitis could cause discomfort down the arm but not past the elbow. The nerves that inervate the shoulder muscles also inervate the skin.
