Calcification Achilles Tendon
Calcifications: Bone is living tissue and responds to stress esp. At the areas where tendon attaches to bone. Over time the bone reacts to the pull of the tendon and lays down bone...These are often called spurs by many. The spurs are not by themselves a problem...But if they break they can be difficult to quite down. So if there is no pain, make sure the joint has normal range of movement and just watch it.
Surgery: You may need to see a surgeon or a second surgeon if this is after a previous repair. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
If Achilles is torn: It is very difficult, or impossible to lift your body up on the affected side while standing on that foot only. To clarify: while holding on to the arm of a chair pick your good leg off the ground. Try to do a toe raise on the bad leg. This is usually not possible with a torn achilles.See 6 more doctor answers
Calf muscles: The gastrocnemius and soleal muscles become the achilles' tendon at the myotendinous junction. If these muscles are tight you will feel it in the achilles' tendon. Stretching exercises are necessary to stretch both muscle groups consult either a podiatrist, physical therapist or your family doc for the appropriate stretches to do.
Several things: Ice, rest, pad in shoe to elevate the heel to take pressure off the achilles tendon, anti-inflamatory meds.See 1 more doctor answer

Rest: This can be very serious and a precursor to rupturing the tendon. You should rest, ice and take time off. If there is any swelling or bruising, or inability to walk, you need to see a dr.See 1 more doctor answer
Possible; not likely: Very generic question. Liver transplant is for liver failure. It would depend on the cause and severity of the "bad liver." a liver transplant is done for a very small number of patients with liver injury/disease. The common reasons are cirrhosis or scarring of the liver from infections, alcoholism, and inflammatory diseases.
Possibly: If you have ruptured your tendon you will probably already have had surgical repair and will be on crutches for a while. If you can work effectively such as a desk job, this shouldn't be a problem. But if you need active movement at work, or the circumstances of your crutches and comfort put you or coworkers at risk, then you should stay at home.See 1 more doctor answer
Not that common: Although sports medicine specialists will see plenty of these injuries, especially in athletic individuals over the age of 30, the actual prevalence in the community is far less than 5%. Prevention of injury is best course of action, including good pre-participatory conditioning, including foot loading exercises and stretching.See 1 more doctor answer
Phobia: I don't know of any specific name for not wanting anything touching your achilles. I would call it fear but the question that needs answering is why?
