achilles tendinitis and extreme cold leg
Hi

Have hadachilles tenonitis for over a year.  It has gradually got worse where more tendons are affected and swelling of leg.  

I started physio and have some exercises to do.  Previously have tried most painkillers, rest, ice, support

However, The other week because of accient i ended up walking near 2 miles and it seems to have affected my tendons more.

I am now experiencing extreme cold leg/ foot.


Is this related?   i dont go to see my physio for a few weeeks yet?

I am still using painkillers and support

Hey Michelle!

Cold leg/ foot is not a normal symptom of achilles tendonitis or any inflammation and could suggest a vascular compromise. If this began all of a sudden or acutely, you may consider visiting the ER to look for vascular issues. If it has been present since sometime, you may consider visiting a primary care physician or an orthopedician for an evaluation and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!

Thanks for your reply.

Yes it is something new that began all of a sudden.

No amount of socks could keep it warm.

Many thanks
