has anyone ever dealt with a sore achiles tendon?

i recently moved to a very hilly area and since i've had to go up and down a steep hill my achiles tendon has been very sore. I went to the doctor and he gave me some cream to use for swelling, pain and inflammation but it's still hurting. have you guys had this issue and what treatment did you use, did it work for you

  • I have that problem. I went to a good shoe store that did mapping of my feet. I then bought a pair of shoes with the correct arch support.....no more pain!!!!!!! I used to cry b/c my feet hurt so bad....not anymore!!!!!

  • I think it would help it you wear a special kind of shoes with extra padding under the heals. also flat shoes could worsen your problem so I would stay away of them.
