Red Sore On Achilles Tendon
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

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

Took cipro (ciprofloxacin) for 2 wks w/ tender achilles. Then 2 doses levofloxacin stopped a week ago, feel like all tendons are being destroyed. Veryworried pls help?
Tendinitis: It is true that Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and Levofloxacin can cause tendinitis, especially in the Achilles tendon. They also put your tendons at risk of rupturing, so I would recommend avoiding strenuous physical activity for the newt few weeks. The tendinitis should go away in a few weeks at the most if you are treating it. Rest, ice, compression, and elevation is best! ...Read more
