Treating these new symptoms can be even more challenging than treating the original ones. A Healthtap specialist can help. ...Read more

No, thats very unli-: Kely. You probably developed some other problem, depending how you were treated for tendinosis. Possibilities include muscle tears (unlikely that you have it on both sides); clots (again very rarely do they occur on both sides); weakened muscles in the calves, if you have been treated by resting them for more than a few days ; now they are hurting, as you start getting around.

I sprained my ankle 2 mos. ago and there is still slight pain a little swelling in the Achilles Tendon. Any guesses how much longer it'll take to heal?

More concerning, is that you are having some issues with your Achilles tendon. Your tendon may be showing signs of an early tendinitis, due to the change in tendon function. This change could be secondary to the unresolved ankle injury. ...Read more

Swelling in left ankle near achilles tendon. No pain or discoloration. Started after I did jumping jacks. Could it be sprained/strained?
Probably not: Sprains and strains are invariably accompanied by pain. Painless swelling can have many causes . If it is exercise induced it could be a nearby joint capsule, tendon sheath enlarging. Some people also have some small defects in the fascia (tissue that forms compartments in the leg) and muscle can push through these areas during exercise. Bottom line, if it is not painful I would not worry. Dr. R ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Eccentric strength: You likely have some degeneration of your achilles which led to the "sprain" in the first place and now causes achy pain. Your sports med provider can prescribe a series of specific eccentric resistance exercises that have been shown in many studies to be the best non-surgical treatment for achilles tendinopathy. You are at slight higher risk for a complete tear, but i wouldn't be too concerned. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
