Thank you for writing,
I just now went through your case,as u told that u r suffering from achilles tendon pain but you had not mentioned whether you visited any doctor and had any examination regarding your problem you can have physiotherapy treatment for your problem

I providing some of them from you as you can follow them

RICE therapy: Most Achilles tendon injuries can be treated with RICE: Rest, Ice, Compression with a sports bandage, and Elevation.
Heat: Alternating ice and heat therapy may improve the pain of bursitis near the Achilles tendon.
Footwear: Wearing shoes with good support that are right for your feet may help avoid continual injury to the Achilles tendon. Custom-made orthotics, heel lifts, and certain splints and braces are sometimes helpful.
Physical Therapy: Although modifying or decreasing activity is important, particular stretches and exercises may be helpful to rehabilitate tendon problems, especially when they are persistent.
