Achilles pain: KaelenG276~ you have Achilles tendonitis and with all the popping and squeezing going on I would be fearful that you were imminently going to rupture the tendon. STOP RUNNING STAT ! Make an appt to see an Orthopedic, Podiatrist, or an PT who specializes in Sports Medicine to concur. DO NOT RUN TILL YOU HAVE DONE THIS ! Apply some ice if painful but DO NOT STRETCH till one of the specialists say so
