Achilles tendon

Postby merlin69 » Mon Sep 17, 2012 8:13 pm

For the past two weeks i have suffered with servere pain down my Achilles tendons in both legs causing my legs to feel so weak when walking.

Any idea how i can relieve the stiffness and pain, i have suffered with FM for the past 8 years and this is the worse i have felt with stiffness and pain in this area.

Sorry by the way new to this Board( i'm Darran)

Hi I ended up off my feet for nearly a year because of a stretched achillies tendon. Best advice I can give is get it seen to by your doctor ASAP. I had every treatment going. Strapping it up, infrared treatment, plaster for 9months, steroid injections into the tendon physiotherapy then had to have an operation to cut the tendon and stitch it back together. Consultant said its easier to snap it than to stretch it. I still get bother every now and then I strap it up and stay of my feet. Good luck xx
