Have you tried any massage? Search around for hard lumps in the muscle, and massage them with the knuckles of the other side arm, with short, slow strokes, in one direction, for about a minute or so, several times each day. Massage should hurt on pressing, but immediately afterwards you should feel relief.

If the pain comes and goes, and gets better with warming up, it is most likely a muscular issue (cramping). If it is always there, and gets much worse when loading the arm, structural damage might be more likely.

Most "tendinitis" things are just muscular cramping due to overuse in the beginning. If you then continue without relief, you will get real tendinitis (with swelling and inflammation of tendon structures).

Good luck, and fast recovery,

Christian
