See a doctor: You will need at least to immobilize it or you may need surgery to repair it.

Surgery: You may need to see a surgeon or a second surgeon if this is after a previous repair. Good luck.

RICE: Rest, ice, compression, elevation. Use a heel lift in your shoes to take pressure off the achilles tendon. If persists see a podiatrist.
