Very tender where Achilles’ tendon meets heel bone. Can’t push

Very tender where Achilles’ tendon meets heel bone. Can’t push toe down to walk. No bruising. Somewhat swollen. Does not hurt when sitting. Did not feel a trauma just started to get sore. Did go up and down ladder many times one day and could hardly walk the next day. Is it possible to slightly detach tendon from bone. Should l see someone or try to stay off it as much as l can. Have been icing it and soaking it in hot water

I ve had pain in my heel, Achilles tendon , especially above the heel bone in the back. I ve had this before and it s gone away. Saw an orthopedic surgeon about it, but since it was getting better he didn t inject it. Ice makes it throb. Rest makes it hurt. Walking will help once I ve taken a few steps. It s very tender to even touch. That heel bone is much larger than the other foot. I don t even know what to ask about it. I wore an ankle brace today, but it didn t help.

For months I have been struggling to climb my stairs . I feel I have no energy to climb the stairs. I am tired all the time although I will sleep for hours. I wake and feel bone tired. I am wondering does it have anything to do with my ankle that has been hurting me where a snapped my Achilles tendon a few years ago and the fact that I can no longer walk around barefoot...I need a heeled slip on shoe to support the ankle. If I walk along the street I have to watch where I am walking as I can feel when the ground it is not level and it hurts my ankle. I seem to be walking with a limp. Could all of this be affecting my thighs?

I just completed 6 weeks of physical therapy for a diagnosis of achilles tendon. They worked on reposturing my weight from the balls of my feet to my heels, stretching the tendons with exercises and graston tool. Although I have gained more range of motion in the ankle I continue to have my main symptom of heel pain, especially after sleeping and sitting for more than 30 minutes. They have suggested I see a podiatrist for other options. I still have questions about if this has been helpful treatment, if I should be using orthotics or specific show types, if my S--- sock helps in bed or need a boot, if a podiatrist can help. I have been suffering for 5 months.
