I thought I'd mention that I am indeed injured,  in case anyone is wondering. I developed achilles tendonitis in March. It is getting better, and hopefully I can start running soon.

I hope you are right EDO, it's no fun being injured. This is my first ever achilles injury/problem.

Try arch/ankle compression with wraps and sports tape. Stretch.

It has been swollen for a couple of months, but it's getting better, albeit slowly.

I have tenderness in my heel.  At times it hurts when I get out of bed and walk to the bathroom unless I walk on my toes.  If I wear shoes it removes a lot of the problem.  When I have been running it is not as pronounced.  I picked up a new pair of shoes fitted properly today.  The shoe store staff mentioned that this should go away in time.  Is this similar to what you are experiencing?  I had this condition for quite a while prior to picking running back up.  I attributed it to cheap Wal-Mart work boots.  I bought a new pair of Red Wings and the pain in walking improved a bit.
