Achilles Rupture – Warning Signs???
I suffered a complete rupture of the achilles on 8th August 02. I believe I had warning signs leading upto the injury but every medical person asked said it was unrelated coincidence. I’d like to know if anyone else experienced the same warning signs leading upto a similar injury.
The signs were:
– a tightening of the muscle along the front of the shin (whatever that’s called), and
– stiffening and ‘claminess’ of the knee.
The signs first showed two or three days leading upto the injury.
Does this sound familiar to anyone?
I was fortunate enough to have surgery performed within 48 hours. Currently have a cast and will have for 8 weeks. I am not looking forward to the lengthy rehab. I can sympathise and relate to other postings about achilles.
