Joint pain and tendonitis?

As a result of long term weightlifiting I have developed tendonitis in my elbow joints. The pain got so bad I could no longer perform any upper body exercises. I haven’t performed any in six weeks, and with every attempt (even with lighter weght), I still feel discomfort… In my research I have seen no long term remedy except cortizone shots in the affected joints or doses of anti inflamatory pills; I don’t like either option…Anyone out there with a similar problem ? Have you tried anything that works well to get one back to normal?

P.S.
I a have also been taking Glucosamine/Chondroitin capsules for about 6 weeks, and I feel no measurable relief .

    You need to take an anti-inflammatory. Although I wouldn’t recommend cortisone, nasty drug. If you wish to go with the healthy route, take Omega 3 for anti-inflammation and eat fresh pineapples to help break down the scar tissues. As for glucosamine/chondroitin, usually takes 2-3 months to see a measured difference.

    You probably have scar tissue built up on your tendon attachments where they enter or attach to the bone…so you may need surgery..you can try all the juices,vitamins,shark cartilage you want…then go with elbow strap with air pillow, motrin or RX, 1 or 2 cortisone injections,PT..then surgery.
