I started running two months and loving it.....but last Friday went for a run (trail) with hubby and after a short distance felt a big twang at back of leg which abruptly stopped me in my tracks and initially could not bear weight on that foot. After a piggy back and car ride to nearest hospital I was eventually examined by a nurse practioner who on advice plastered my lower leg in toe flex position....am now awaiting a phone call from hospital so I can have further assessment and scan whenever that maybe.....meanwhile I'm sat here (dying to get out for a run) with no definitive results and getting more frustrated. Am just wondering if anyone else has suffered similar injury and what they were actually diagnosed, I know it can be dangerous asking for 'medical' opinions but if it is a tear to Achilles what is the general prognosis? TIA for any comments x
