In brief: Treatments so far?

What type of treatment are you undergoing? Achilles "tendinitis" is responsive to eccentric loading physical therapy and radial shock wave therapy.
Rarely, neither of these work and an invasive procedure such as breisment or surgery is needed.

In brief: Achilles Tendonitis

Rest! achilles tendinitis which is stretching the tendon where it inserts on the heel.
Try wearing a heel lift in your shoe or a slight heel to relax the tendon from its insertion. Ice, rest, topical irritants like icy hot or bengay can help too. If it doesn't get better visit your local podiatrist for further evaluation and treatment. Possible need to ankle brace, walking boot or therapy.
