I had a comminuted spiral fracture of my left fibula over 5 years ago. I had severe pain in my Achilles tendon and the ankle directly after the break and for approximately 2 or 3 days, practically unbearable. No surgery. Just a cast after 3 days. Now, recently, my Achilles tendon, foot and ankle are really hurting. Right in the spot where the break was. More so than ever before. I also have undifferentiated connective tissue disease.
