Diagnose my ankle injury

    I think it's sprained, but I've never had a sprain like this.

    I rolled it last night, but it doesn't hurt when I move it side-to-side. It only hurts when I push off and point my toes while walking. It's not swollen and there's not any bruising. When I first start walking, it hurts but within 20 or steps I'm okay.

    I'm wondering if I might have sprained my Achille's tendon. Any ideas?

    I would probably check-raise.

    Torn Achilles. Amputation needed.

    I would, but since he's not my PCP my company HMO won't pay for it. ;)

    This thread is useless without pictures!

    While we're on medical talk, I'll throw out a query for the group: Does anyone else get tendinitis in their arms? About once every six weeks or so, I'll get a spell in one arm or the other (usually the right one, though) between the elbow and hand. And it's sufficient pain that I want to go vomit.

    Usually, I just take a couple of Advil and wait it out. Anyone else have advice on treating it more swiftly?

    Whack it with the left sometimes.

    That's harder than it sounds.

    I have tendinitis in both knees. My elbows were getting it pretty badly when shooting a round of golf, though stopping that took care of that malady.

    As for your dilemma, I dunno if I have any worthwhile advice.

    IW, I'm wondering if you might have done something to your fifth metatarsal, with all your body weight having rolled on it. FDP might be right.
