I've been to multiple doctors who still don't know if there's anything wrong with my tendon. Having this injury for 4+ years has been quite annoying, especially when I do activities such as dance, netball, soccer and gymnastics and sometimes just walking in general causes me pain. It has been unfortunate that I have had to give up some of these things because of my injury. I have been to a couple of PT sessions but they don't do much to help improve my tendon. If anyone has any advice that would be helpful. Thank you.
