I guess you could call it that.  I does sound like a repetitive motion type of strain.  This does cause inflammation which puts pressure on nerves and causes pain.  Tendonitis is inflammation of a tendon.

Often times rest and ice will help; then try to change up your routine- for example, if you always use youe right arm for a particular task, try using the left. 

Sometimes, with a shoulder/ collar bone issue you may need to have something aligned or adjusted by your chiroporactor.  Your posture may also be playing a roll.

A couple suggestions are the posture corrector and traction pillow: http://www.arc4life.com
