Lump on achilles tendon. Mri shows nothing but the lump is visable just looking at my foot. drs r stumped! Very painful all the time. Any ideas?

It is odd

Ankle_sprain
That nothing would show on the MRI! Was the MRI performed with and without contrast. Soft tissues are usually very well defined on an MRI. Any type of mass or even swelling would normally show on the study.

Dr. James Dukelow answered:

What to do if I have a painful lump on my achilles tendon does anyone know what it could be?

An exam is needed!

Achilles_tendonitis
There are a number of things. A painful lump on the tendon can range from a cyst to a calcification, or even the beginning of a rupture. There needs to be more info given. I will say that in view that it is on the achilles tendon (A very large tendon) and you are having pain, it needs to be looked at by a physician.

Rheumatologist

Tendon
Sounds like it is time for a visit to a rheumatologist. Many times a course of steroids can help but long term treatment is needed

Dr. David B. Hicks answered:

hard ...sometimes painful "bump" in achilles tendon area?

Tear

Achilles_tendon
aAnytime there is a bump that is tender in the achillles area consider a partial tear and you would be at hiogh riskk for acute complete tear. Stop doing any jumping running, or stressing the achilles and seek medical attention. A littl rest and treatment now will save six months of recovery later

Painful Achilles Tendon – How do I get rid of the pain?

Achilles tendonitis

Ibuprofen
OTC ibuprofen, ice and possibly physical therapy are some options. If pain is severe an MRI can be done to rule out a tear of the tendon

What is more painful, a broken knee cap or a torn achilles tendon?

Broken knee cap

Tendon
Achilles tendon rupture often do not hurt much and can easily be overlooked. A broken bone e.g. knee cap hurts much more and will cause your leg to buckle painfully when you attempt to put weight on it

Which would be more painful: a broken knee cap or a torn achilles tendon?

??

Achilles_tendon
Everyone perceives pain and injuries differently. These are both horribly painful, terrible injuries. If I had to guess I would say kneecap, but I know they are both very painful.

Is it normal for a ruptured achilles tendon to be excruciatingly painful a week after?

No

Hernias
If the area has been treated and immobilized the pain and swelling should be receeding.

Dr. Robert Leland answered:

I have a very weak achilles tendon and is very painful, what exercises can I do to help strengthen it?

Need a diagnosis

Tendon
A "tendon" is rarely "weak." If the muscles that form the achilles (gastrocnemius and soleus) are weak a physical therapy program can be of benefit

A nurse said i have badly pulled/sprained my achilles tendon. It is really painful to walk on, she hasn't given me any crutches? Help?

See a podiatrist

Achilles_tendon_injury
There could be a partial tear in the tendon or associated structures. I love our nurses, but you should see a doctor on this one.
