Achilles Problem?: The tendon is normally loose with the foot pointed down. It is tense with foot pointed down. Lie face down and have someone squeeze your calf. Your foot should automatically point away from you head. It is hard to break the tendon in a person under 40 by getting stepped on by someone else. If you mean you did it, probably stepping off a curb without warm up you may have broken it and need repair
