I've hurt my Achilles tendon by running (too much beer and a little run seemed like a good idea).
It's been sore for about 5-6 weeks now, especially when I get up in the mornings and walk down stairs, and it's a little bet swollen about halfway down. I can ride a bike OK but it plays up if I put a big effort in such as uphills.
I've done the usual bloke thing and had a look on the net for a solution, I'm not going to the doctor's as they'll want to stick sharp bits of metal in me and that is my worst nightmare (I know, MTFU and go to doc's, it's not going to happen!).
Has anyone else had a similar injury, and how did you treat it?
