Nancy those are good questions. I have been slowly developing this tightness also, though it is not so bad that I worry about immediate danger from stretching. I think the answer probably lies in a thorough investigation of achilles tendonitis, of which there are several varieties. I can't dare to venture an answer to the dillemma of the need for calf stretching vs. this achilles stress. When I have time I will look into it and can only suggest 1) seeing someone about it and 2) doing the same kind of comprehensive search on achilles tendonitis that I expect you have done on pf. I would be concerned about an achilles rupture, or at least look into this condition.

good luck!
