Achellies hurts!

Posted by Craig on 9/20/02 at 02:10 (095792)

I am an avid tennis player. I hurt my achellies about four months ago playing tennis. I have rested it since then and although
It feels a little better, there is still some pain. Some days are worse then others, for no apparent reason.
A sharp pain,even to the touch,in the achellies area.
I always wear prescrition orthodixs (hard).
I have no insuranse or job at the moment, so
want to avoid expensive treatment.
How long do these

injuries last? How long should I rest
it before going another route? Is there any hope of recovery?
