    not only did I have pain when I woke up and started walking but also after sitting down for a few minutes and my ankle would swell significantly whenever I was standing in my feet. I felt like I was walking on a stick or lump.
    I was sick in December and proscribed short dose prednisone which made the pain and swelling go away within a day however the pain came back after a week. I began having trouble with balance and was bumping into things and felt like my foot was giving out. After the mri showed the Achilles and extensor tendons were involved with moderate damage and tendonosis to the distal 1/3 of the Achilles I was sent to orthopedic surgeon who bless him said wearing the boot and splint and sticking to strict tendon rest would do the same thing as the surgery for the calf muscle. He put me on a 17 day prednisone taper and ordered me to do a tall walking boot when I am up and night splint when I’m sleeping. I was told only take them off to shower and change. I’m not supposed to walk more than 300 consecutive feet with the boot and may use crutches for longer distances. I must not be on my foot for more than 20 minutes at a time and can’t lift more than 30 pounds. I also need to continue rice method. I am on week 5 of 6 and will be starting the next phase in one week for physical therapy and to progress into heel lift orthotic shoes.
    The pain again went away with the prednisone and has not come back. The light stretch of the splint and the immobilization from the boot have made a big difference in my calf. It is very soft compared to my other which is rather tight. So far I’m quite impressed with how good I’m feeling and hope which my continued strict adherence that I am cured.

    Partial tear of Achilles playing competitive tennis. Still feeling the effects over two years afterwards. Have tried many treatments. Orthodics, NSAIDs, and high quality brace have been the most helpful but not enough to resume competitve play. Discouraged.

    Sore Achilles due to a bad experience with running shoes. Continued to run with the right shoes before it was healed and aggravated it. The only thing that has helped much has been just taking time off from running. Wrapping a heat pad around the shoe area also seems helpful, plus I have done some stretching exercises. Nothing was effective without stopping running however.

    I don't really know how I injured my left foot. The heel lift helped by shortening the stretch for the tendon, but then I turns my foot again with the heel lift in. Now nothing but rest helps. NSAIDs help some but are hard on my stomach. I know if I weighed 135 my foot wouldn't hurt!!
