In brief: Other suggestions
I have been dealing with this condition myself for over five years, which was refractory to stretches, heel lifts, anti-inflammatories, and eccentric strengthening.
Newer treatments including ultrasounded guided tenotomy & prp really helped me. People are also now using stem cell treatments.

In brief: Several
Rest, ice, compression, elevation.
Also try a lift in your shoe, under the heel to remove pressure from the achilles tendon.

Stretching of the calf muscles frequently(5-7 times per day) is the most effective treatment I have seen in my patients.
