2 years ago I hurt my achelies tendon walking on uneven ground where now it snaps every 5-10 steps with searing pain to only snap again can be heard very audibly.
The only treatment I have received is a cortisone shot which didn’t really do anything to help.
My life is ruined I need to use a walker to walk I find it hard to mobilize stairs I use the walls of the house to lean on to get around my home after being very active even though I was a larger person I now struggle to take more then 500-1000 steps per day.
I am not on pain killers. Just over the counter medication when it all gets to much.
Because of swelling of lower legs due to thyroid issues ct and ultrasound is inconclusive.
I am desperate to get my mobility back so I can return to work and return to having a somewhat normal life.
