I too suffered from tendonitis, trying cortizone and various other meds that were only temporary remedies. Through conversation I was told about Licorice Root capsules, I tried them and they worked within days. I quit taking them once the pain went away and it's been maybe 5 or 6 months since I've had any pain. I have felt tension on a couple of occasions and have taken a few when that has occurred, the pain never develops. I hope this works as well for you as it did for me.
