Am having the pains in the bottom of my foot - plantar facititus?? And now am getting pains in my achilles too - god knows why, my trainers are fine, having been building my distances on a gradual basis, do plenty of cross-training too, and do loads of stretching - have been running for a couple of years, so why has this happened now - it bloomin hurts!! And I can't wear high heels without pain!

Hi there

About 7 weeks ago on a club night I felt something "go" in the back of my calf. Turns out that I went over on my ankle & tore the gastrocnemus muscle. This muscle is now ok the problem is my ankle. I have tried running but I get a pain - it feels like deep inside either side of my ankle & a little way up my leg. My physio recons that it may be a bursitus & has recommended ibuprufen. I have been taking these for a week now but can still feel a tenderness. I am getting desperate!! Any advice greatly welcomed, anyone had a similar problem - if so how much longer before I can run.

Thanks for all of the above folks! I've been running with no problems for 3 years until 6 weeks ago got swelling, pain and heat with a "bump" on achilles' tendon. Was already seeing osteo/sports theraist(didn't get very far) and he's now sending me off to an acupuncturist! Did find very tense calf muscles which I massage for several minutes each day, with some effect!I can't wear high heels, am finding gel heel supports some help and have been wearing a magnet with best effect so far! However even short runs give me pain and I am getting frustrated. Any other good ideas?
