See a podiatrist. You need to have an exam and then possible physical therapy.
Newer Treatments. Common treatments for achilles tendonitis are gastroc/soleus stretches, heel lifts, anti-inflammatory medications, orthotics, and eccentric strengthening. I have been dealing with this condition myself for over five years, which was refractory to all the above. Newer treatments including ultrasounded guided tenotomy & prp really helped me. People are also now using stem cell treatments as well.
