Achilles tendonitis??
 
Okay, I did some looking online about this, and I'm feeling most of the symptoms: burning-type pain above the heel (but it does seem to get better later in the day); it's warm to the touch, and there's visible inflammation in the from of a "little bump" that I feel a little bit above the heel. When I took my shoes off and flexed my foot, I could feel a "stretchy-type" feeling in the area. From what I've read today, it sounds like tendonitis in the Achilles.

I've already done the obvious: cease activity that could be causing it, but what my question is: Can I do anything about it without having to go for another office visit (and possible PT)? I just maxed my flex spending, so I have to be careful about what I go in for.

I do also understand that you can never really say anything for sure without an actual physical examination, so I'm just asking for opinions. Thaanks!

Honestly, I don't know the foot well. It's not something we really cover. It sounds like tendonitis and you're doing what you should be. That's all I can tell you with what I know. Sorry.

No worries. It just gives me an excuse to sit back aand watch Game 5.
