      Symptoms of Achilles Tendinitis

      Symptoms include:

      • discomfort or swelling in the back of your heel
      • tight calf muscles
      • limited range of motion when flexing your foot
      • skin on your heel overly warm to the touch

      The main symptom of Achilles tendinitis is pain and swelling in the backside of your heel when you walk or run. Other symptoms include tight calf muscles and limited range of motion when you flex your foot.

      The most obvious sign is pain above your heel, especially when you stretch your ankle or stand on your toes. It may be mild and get better or worse over time. If the tendon ruptures, the pain is instant and severe. The area may also feel tender, swollen, and stiff.

      If your Achilles tendon tears, you may hear a snapping or popping noise when it happens. You could have bruising and swelling, too. You also may have trouble pointing your toes and pushing off your toes when you take a step.

      This condition can also make the skin on your heel feel overly warm to the touch.
