    I'm not sure if y'all saw that I had stopped the movement months ago.

    kipping pullups=stupid. do things with controlled motion. maybe you were doing too much volume? not enough rest time beteween workout days? maybe your form is bad? what about other influences, like work or other hobbies that put you in uncomfortable or unnatural positions? tendonitis can take months to clear itself up. back in my super heavy lifting days, i developed tendonitis in my shoulders and on 2 occasions, missed 3-4 months in the gym. you can take anti-inflamatories like ibuprofin if you really want to. rest, ice, and some mobility work would probably help as well. but only time will help that go away

    My advice is to see a Rolfer and possibly a Cranio-Sacral therapist

    The problem may show up in your elbow but the source may be in your shoulder. Has anyone watched you perform any movements, or do you have video? An asymmetry there may be the root cause.

    Definitely rest for awhile. Do eccentric exercises to strengthen the forearm (reverse wrist curls tend to work best) and supplement with a natural anti-inflammatory like fish oil and a proper joint supplement. Elbow Revive is my go-to supplement any time I feel the slightest ache of elbow tendonitis coming back-- works great. Of course if the problem persists, which it often does, see your doc and maybe get an MRI. Hope this helps.

    I understand the desire to keep up your strength, but it seems to me that if you are doing 25-30 pushups a day, your elbow is not getting real rest. I have the same issue and it is super-frustrating--for me, it's because I want to *start* a strength program, but can't do basically any upper-body stuff (open to suggestions) because of the wonky elbow. It becomes noticeably better whenever life circumstances keep me from dance class for a couple weeks (which is how I hurt it).

    I've added collagen to my diet and am removing dairy, to help with joint issues and possible inflammation, respectively. Bone broth, when it's not too hot to find the concept laughable.

    Wishing you luck!
