Ok guys i normaly dont start new threads but ive searched and couldnt find any definitive answer here and would like some help. So here is the story.
About three weeks ago my crew and I went on a run, it was a little over four miles and cold out. Not thinking about it i wore a pair of shoes that i usualy dont run in. Every mile or so we stopped to stretch out.
During the run we would sprint and then go back to a decent jog. Some cramping occured but nothing tonterribly bad.
We get back to work, shower and go about our day. The next day i wake up and both of my achilles hurt. Not like a nagging pain but a sharp pain and as i walk in the boots they get worse.
I goto medical and the doc diagnoses me with achilles tendonitis and prescribes me prednisone and motrin. He puts me on light duty for a week so no running etc.
I check back in with him a week later and tell him the pain has gone down but isnt gone. He puts me back on full duty. I explain to a fellow Marine the issues and that i was told to take it easy at pt so im basicallu running at my own pace.
The pain is still there but mostly in my right achilles. One thing i have noticed is when i move my foot down and up that it feels like friction in my achilles. There is no pain when i flex up or down only when i walk on it and the pain isnt unbearable.
There is no bruising nor any swelling to speak of. I have been applying joint force and taking ALs achilles.
Any idea why my achilles feels like there is friction and what i can do to sort of rehab this issue myself? Ive tried stretching it but it doesnt seem to help.
Sorry for the long post and thanks for any help you guys may be able to offer.
