Hi All, does anyone else get problems with pain in the Achilles' tendons, I was diagnosed with Pmr last October then in November I started with a flare up in my right Achilles' tendon. I have had these flares on and off over the years and they usually clear up with rest and Ibuprofen. But this time the pain is as strong now as it was when it started, and now over the past 2 months my left tendon has decided to join in. I am in a lot of discomfort and need to use a stick when walking. My Rheumy said it can take a long time to heal up. Is there a connection to Pmr? I'm not sure, I am longing to go for walks in the country despite the pain, now the nice weather is here, but I am afraid of doing permanent damage. Blessings.
