My Achilles Tendon Aches

58y/o female- sore, warm to the touch, quarter sized lumps below her Achilles' tendon. Will call doc Monday if not gone, but could this be gout?
Is it possible? Yes: Does it sound like it? Not really. First off that's not really a joint area and gout usually affects joints. Without seeing the lumps it is hard to take a guess....I am it sure why hey would "disappear" by Monday.....if there is anyway you can show us a picture that would be helpful in us helping you. ...Read more
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

I have dull pain under of my left leg above the knee and outside of my leg just below the knee - bottom of my foot is numb and Achilles tendon is sore. Physio thinks stretched nerve - healing time?
Get examined!: Achilles' tendons that become 'inflamed'( tendinitis) often respond well to a trial of NSAIDs( ibuprofen) , rest from activities which are aggravating them, and sometimes a small lift in the shoe you are wearing that decreases the 'stress' on the tendon. Other conditions need to be 'ruled out'( 'pump bumps', bursitis , partial tears, etc.) so see your ORS or Podiatrist for evaluation. Good Luck! ...Read more
If I strained/sprained my Achilles tendons 10 years ago and they still get achey sometimes, is there anything I can do about that? Cause for concern?
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
