hehehe see you say you CANT rest it that long but if you DONT it stays with you for a long LONG time. I had patella tendonitis once (jumpers knee in laymans terms) and i thought stuff it ill play basketball 2 nights a week and lift it will go soon I cant take time off… took 6-8 months to go in the end and has never healed properly so that it can now reoccur IF i dont train correctly.

Tendons are dangerous things not to take carefully they have next to no blood supply so heal extremely slow and are so important for transfer of force to your bones so really watch out for it as I wouldnt like your arm to become like my knee, it sucks.
