Achilles Pain

Postby Sopralto37 » Sat Sep 03, 2011 1:39 am

Does anybody else with Leg LE experience a LOT of pain in their achilles tendon when stretching it during things like going down the stairs? I find myself limping trying to almost hop on my good leg when going to or from my 3rd floor room in my dorm......

Any advice on how to ease the pain?

Though I have LE in both legs, I don't have pain in the achilles area.

Be sure to let your doctor know as they really need to find out specifically what is causing this.

I always caution people not to automatically assume something is just part of their LE. It could well be something else.

I sure had a shocker in this are when a redish spot on my left leg turned out to be lymphoma.
