One day woke up and my husband’s ankle was in pain. We let it be for about 3-4 days and it just gotten worse. We rest it and iced it and it didn’t improve. We went to see orthopaedic doctor, he injected an inflamtory Med needle and each day he took Arcoxia 120mg and he was better as he was able to walk. He was diagnosed Insertional Achilles Tendinosis. As we thought he was getting better but if he walks around 5000 steps for 2 days in a row, the pain will come again. He will take the Arcoxia for about 5 days and he will be ok again. This just keeps happening for the last 3 months. When he is walking, he can actually feel/hear the micro tear on his tendon. No idea what to do to get better as all the doctors just told us to Rest...
