Achilles tendonitis is a painful condition that can cause pain with every step you take. As the name suggests Achilles tendonitis affects the Achilles tendon. The Achilles tendon connects the heel of the foot to the calf muscles.
Symptoms include pain which may be present at the Achilles tendon during activity and may also increase once activity has ceased. Tenderness can usually be felt along the course of the tendon and in some cases there may be the presence of a localized nodule (small sack of fluid) on the tendon. Another sign to look for is that the soles of shoes tend to wear out quickly around the heel region.
