I’ve had this pain in my achilles region for a month or so, which seems to be getting worse. I play football (soccer) and the pain started to come on when I struck the ball with the end of my foot – forcing the foot to “stretch out”. It’s now getting worse (think the hard ground could be aggravating it) so that when I move my foot down, a shooting pain goes up the achilles area. Not sure what it is and the only thing that comes close in the injury index is Dislocation of Peroneal Tendons. The pain is intense but recedes after a few minutes of walking it off, until I am able to play again.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what it could be?
