I was just about to suggest what Christian did. Use pushup grips to make it easier for you. Paralletes are fine but you can even use 2 dumbbells and just grip the handles. You can also pick up some plastic handles for not much money.

I'd suggest searching for golfer's elbow and tennis elbow since there was a lot of discussion about 3 months ago and a lot of therapies can be appropriate. I mentioned ART, Active Release Therapy, which can really help with muscles that are adhering, have trigger points or where the fascia needs to be stretched.

My experience has been that the forearm muscles and tendons are a weak link and that even after months of rest, the same problems can easily recur. I think physical therapy may be required if it doesn't go away on its own.
