Tennis elbow… PLEASE I REALLY NEED HELP!!! IT’S RUINING ME!!!?

i know i have tennis elbow because i have visited the doctor. the pain started about half a year ago, and only sometimes get better when i rest it. there was a period of time when i rested that arm and if did not hurt even when i fisted tightly and "mimed" lifting weights (now it hurts). but after i resumed gymnastics, the pain came back. the doctor recommended one to two weeks’ rest, but it does not solve the problem wholly. do i have to rest it for a longer period of time to let it heal completely?
also, will the performance and durability of the elbow in the future be affected by the period of time which i have tennis elbow?
lastly, my elbow cracks very often. i find that after cracking, the elbow is a little less pain. because i have had this condition for a long time, i found out a way to crack the elbow with the least pain. but the question is this: is elbow cracking normal and does it have any good or bad effects (long and short term)
I REALLY REALLY NEED HELP PLEASE!!!! thanks!
