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?

What's the best thing you can do for aching Achilles tendons?

What's the best thing you can do for aching Achilles tendons?

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
