Achilles problems

Been suffering Achilles problems and wondered if anyone on here has had similar issues or could suggest best course of action. Felt my left Achilles tighten whilst out running and made the fatal mistake of trying to run it off. Next day it was swollen and I could barely walk for 2 days. Tried running again after 2 weeks and the same happened.

I am pretty certain it was due to a change in trainers so I have gone back to my old sturdy ones, however 6 weeks down the line I have just started up running again and it still isn’t right. I am mid 40s but feel like an old man when I get out of bed as it takes 5 minutes to walk in my Achilles on both legs!!

Both of mine feel shot in the last six months. Stiffen up terribly if i dont keep them moving - i have to shuffle down the stairs sideways like a crab when i get up on a morning. They also feel bruised to the touch. Don't know if it's tendonitis or what, but they aren't getting any better like.

That’s exactly like me, sore to the touch too. Left is a lot worse than the right though.

Mines fucked as well if that’s any help....snapped twice and now looks like a fucking twig let with all the lumps on it. Swells up and makes it awful to walk every few weeks. Been offered an op where they swap a tendon in from your big toe....thought the fella was taking the piss but it’s a thing. Chronic tendinopathy or summat.

That sounds minging. Good luck with it.

Ouch! Think I will take the physio advice and sort mine before something like this happens.
