Is there any difference between muscle tension and muscle tightness?

I want to study the relation between forearm muscles tightness/tension and tendinopathy (specifically, medial and lateral epicondylopathy) in humans. In that context, I wanted to understand whether muscle tension and muscle tightness are synonymous, and if not what the difference is.
