Achilles tendinitis - help!

Tuesday, January 12, 2016

I have started my walking program. I am in the second full week of walking. I started off walking one mile everyday the first week, and I am walking two miles/day now. I have a pain in the back of my leg by my ankle, which, when I google it, it says achilles tendinitis. I read a bit more on it, and I believe that's what I have. I don't want to stop my program, because I'm feeling good. Does anyone have any suggestions on stretches or anything else that might help it? I would really appreciate ideas!

    emoticon Hopefully the Stretching and Ibuprofen will help and the pain will decrease as you build up your Muscles and Endurance.
    If you do Ibuprofen, please Never Ever take it on an empty Stomach. It is a good medication, but can be Deadly to your stomach lining.

    Not sure exactly. Someone else had this problem and was advised to rest them as much as possible, allowing for activity that they tolerate, and taking a regimen of ibuprofen. Not sure if you want to try that or not but it's at least a place to start. I know I take ibuprofen for my feet which I have had issues with lately and it helps a bit. I can still get in my walks and other exercises as I can, but resting them as much as I can in between.

    Wishing you the best. Try epsom salt and detox drinks, like plenty of green tea and much water. Really try and detox you body as much as possible especially if you are "just starting working back out". When I jumped back in I was hurting everywhere. I had to take it really slow and detox my body. I even started juicing a little with beets, and plenty of greens. Hope this helps! emoticon
