Pain when I bend my foot back...

Posted by Daniel R on 6/03/03 at 19:38 (120830)

I injuried the back of my foot(I think its the lower Achillies Tendon) a few weeks ago while playing football. When I straight my leg out and bend my foot back, I get this very bad pain on just the left side of all the back of my foot (I think its the Achillies Tendon). When my leg is not straight and I bend it back it doesnt hurt, only when I straight my leg out and bend it back does it hurt. Does this sound serious? Could you give me any advice? Thanks.

Sounds like achilles tendon problem. Are you limping.? Any swelling, black and blue discoloration present?

Not really. When I press down on the very back of my ankle (near the very back of the foot), I can fill the pain run down the back of my foot and the spot fells really num for some reason....
