In brief: Need rest

Tendonitis is an overuse injury from repetitive activity such as playing tennis or running.
Rest or changing activity will often result in healing. A non steroidal anti inflammatory medication such as Ibuprofen or Naproxen will lessen the pain and swelling of tendonitis. Take the medicine with food. Stop if you have stomach pain. Stop after ten to 14 days. See doc if not improving.
