Tendonitis Help

Ive seemed to be suffering badly from tendonitis, ive got bad tennis elbow in one arm, which im trying to treat, also had it in my knee to.
But recently during squatting ive triggered what seems to be upper adductor tendonitis in one leg, ive been resting for 2 weeks now but its still there, its most painfull at the bottom of the squat movement, also can feel it if im lying on the floor and tuck my knees in to my chest. Its up high in my inner leg and is sharp pain.
 
Any idea how to treat it its a real pain in the arse.
 
thx

    Rest (Avoid aggravating factors), but keep moving.

    Stretch. Once you can stretch with no pain move into isometric stregnthening, then eccentric loading.

    If you rest and then go straight back to what you were doing in the first place it will reoccur.

    Good advice above - I also found high dosed omega 3 (I usually get about 8g per day) helped a lot with my tennis elbow.

    I've had it for months in my knees constantly and in my left elbow on and off.
    Omega 3 tabs have helped a bit. It's bloody annoying though, sometimes it gets so bad that my legs shake when I'm walking down stairs, like they're really weak.

    Edit: I find it's worse a few days after having been drinking alcohol. Dunno how that could affect it?

    Got it bad in my shoulder after an injury, too many rehab exercises.
     
    As others have said, rest is key.  Even though the original injury was resolved, the tendonitis is still there.  I haven't been doing my stretches which is daft, keep on forgetting them.
     
    Feel for you dude, it's bloody annoying when you should be making progress and one small muscle group isn't playing ball!

    Can you do any leg exercises that don't aggrovate it? Stick to those. Can you deadlift? Can you do body weight squats? Isolations? The squat isn't the be all and end all. That's coming from an Oly lifter.. I'm injured (or at least have some pain which isn't doms) for a much of the year. Learn to adapt your training so you don't lose muscle/strength. I used to just take time off as I thought if I couldn't squat or bench my life was over lol. It's the wrong thing to do.

    If it's slightly painful when doing an exercise then stop what you're doing. Stretch/roll frequently. A tight muscle will put more tension through the tendon.

    Keep moving. Tendons need some stress to promote healing.

    Tendons take longer to heal than muscles and if you continue to overload a reactive tendon (which is what you have) then it will become. degerative tendon which you won't to avoid.
