Tendons attach muscle to bone, tendon-itis means inflamed tendons visa vie tight or overworked muscle. Repetitive motions, I.e., tightening straps wreck havoc on forearm flexors and extensors. If bicep is tight, which it sounds like, as is your primary forearm supinator, you've got to loosen the tissue network around the joints of both the shoulder, and elbow. Wrist too I suppose. Tomorrow I will post a few stretches on a video that is something I have done and do with myself, clients and students. In the meantime keep moving it, albeit in a relaxed manner and no dg. Careful on overdoing anti inflams. Inflammation is not a bad thing.

Something I've run across lately is taking over the counter magnesium and zinc supplements for muscle pain. I've been doing a lot of bending, stooping and lifting and almost overnight after starting the pills, I felt better and more flexible.

I had a similar "traveling" pain in my throwing arm that ended up being a nerve issue in my neck. Discovered via an MRI that a swollen disc was pressing on a nerve bundle that feeds my arm.

I took 2-3 months off(and learned to throw lefty) and it's pretty much gone. I had to throttle back on the drives for a while

I'm feel strongly that nightly icing is the best thing one can for feeling banged up here or there. It's amazing the difference it can make.

A week of doing it an hour a night does wonders.

It's gonna sound crazy,but I've heard a weak shoulder muscle can cause this type of pain.

I'm not sure how you go about figuring this out except for going to a doctor,but this what I have heard.

I had tennis elbow from over doing field work. I was also gripping the disc too hard. Pain lasted 3 months. I should have taken more time off of DG but I didn't.

Flex bars and Serola Gel Arc Elbow Brace worked well for me. I am now pain free, gripping softer (and throwing cleaner/better as a result).

Your milage may vary. See a doctor. I did not have any biceps issues.

You're doing physical repetitive work and you hurt, you should find out if you have a designated workers' comp doctor that you can get an eval, and if needed covered treatment, from.
