Is there a condition where you're more prone to get tendinitis?
I've had several cases of tendinitis over the years -- some exercise related, some not -- in many different joints. Therefore, I was just wondering if there could be some underlying condition that might make me more prone to getting it.
I exercise a bit each day but would by no means consider myself an athlete. I wonder how athletes like pitchers can throw a ball a hundred times in a game but I can't throw something more than a couple of times without damaging the tendon.

You don't have to be an athlete to get tendonitis. "itis" must means inflammation and that can happen for various reasons or even repetitive movements in day-to-day activities. There are things people can do to reduce their chances of developing tendonitis (link 1)
Tendinitis can also result from:
certain diseases, such as diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis
certain antibiotics (quinolones such as Levaquin)
