I have been in terrible pain. Due to a bad injury to my right knee I have a permanent limp and only full weight bear on the left leg. I slipped down the stairs and banged the left archilles tendon against concrete about 6 months ago. Three months later I rolled the left foot and sprained the ankle. My problem is, there is a lump on the archilles, it goes red alot, the ankle is swollen and I keep getting very painful shooting pains around the ankle, heel and the calf muscle which is very tight. Even while sleeping the pain wakes me up and I can feel hot sensations running around the foot. The ankle and archilles are still swollen. I have had continuous deep tissue massage for 3 months, and I feel its getting worse. I am now in constant pain. Anybody got any ideas as to what is wrong? One doctor said archilles tendonitis, another said bad ankle sprain, another said both conditions. Thanks alot.
