Hi all, I've been suffering for a week or two from pain around my left achilles tendon. It isn't the main tendon but more where the white arrows are in the picture below:
The pain eases when I'm running but comes back afterwards. If I lift my big toe on the same foot the pain passes through to the indicated area.
I've tried strapping it to reduce the movement, i've tried stretching.
I can't really afford to see a specialist at the minute, and I normally find that they always 'need' for you to go again.
I ran Brighton Marathon without pain and I suspect new support trainers were the cause. I've recently changed those and other aches and pains have gone but this one remains.
Any ideas? anyone suffered the same agony? any solutions?
