Achilles: When you had x rays weren't you give something to do to help this ? See your sports med doc or podiatrist for another evaluation and recommendations.

You should see: A doctor if for nothing else to get a diagnosis and see if you are jeopardizing your running passion. If you end up popping your achilles yo certainly won't be able to run at all for a while so see a dcotor and find a diagnosis and stop putting yourself at further risk.
