I try using a pillow to raise the back of my sore heel but it still doesn't stop the burning pain. I wonder if Achilles tendon is involved. Walk OK.

Good question: Achilles tendonopathy tends to produce an enlarged, tender tendon (particularly sore when squeezed). Also, small nerve branches supplying the heel can become irritated to cause a burning pain. One question: why are you taking clonazepam? Underlying disorder?

See your doctor for exam. Details of the physical should help diagnosis, and this will help treatment. ...Read more

Injury: I am a runner and had a similar problem for a length of time. You might have to incorporate some type of stretching. I would possibly first see a dr. And find out if the tendon is just strained or torn. Then, you might need some type of physical therapy, icing, heat, or even possibly ultrasound therapy. But need to be checked first! ...Read more

In ballet class, I experienced a popping sound and painless sensation in the area of my left Achilles tendon. What could this be?

Sprain vs. Tear: It would be best to see a Podiatrist for a quick evaluation and diagnosis as this could be a sprain or represent a small tear. Additional possibilities include tendonitis or even an impingement syndrome.

I am going to disney world and I have a keloid scar in my Achilles tendon. Are there ways to cure this?

I am going to disney world and I have a keloid scar in my Achilles tendon. Are there ways to cure this?

Steroid Injections: If this is a true keloid scar, you can get improvement in the appearance of the scarring by flattening it out with serial steroid injections. I like to use kenalog (triamcinolone) 10 and have the patients come in at monthly intervals, usually about 3, for injections. Your scarring may be a hypertrophic scar instead of a keloid because it is in a location of motion. See your doctor for options. ...Read more
