I had hurt my ligaments near the heels of both the feet 7 months back. I dont know how because there was no immediate pain which can be traced to an event. I suspect it could have happened because once i had to walk quite long wearing a shoe that was hurting my feet. Or it could be beacuase i had to help my servant to carry a weighty table to fourth floor climbing the steps (i was not usual to such things). my doctor asked me to take bed rest and gave me some tablets containing Diclofenac and some ointments. Later he asked me to take physiotherapy. Nothing helps. Now after 7 months of treatment i am not not able to walk properly. Kindly suggest any therapy.
The symptoms seem to be related to Achilles tendinitis. I suggest using anti-inflammatory medications such as Ibuprofen to relieve the pain. I see that you have already treated the problem with physiotherapy.
If the symptoms continue, I suggest consulting a surgeon for further evaluation.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
