See a doctor: You need to see a doctor for evaluation and treatment that will probably include physical therapy to stretch out the musceles and tendons.

Tendinitis: You are describing achilles tendinitis. You may have been over training without properly stretching your achilles. The achilles area can get inflamed from short or tight achilles or the gastrosoleus complex. See a podiatrist. Epat may help you too and a stretching program with heel lifts added to orthotics.
