First, some background: I have Spastic CP and have a higher risk of having ankle sprains due to weak ankles and heel pain due to occassionally tight heelcords.
I sprained my left ankle 2 weeks ago, and a few days ago I noticed that the heelcord (or Achilles tendon?) of my left foot has felt tight, along with the sprain tenderness. My right heel feels normal, though, and up 'till now my left one had been fine!
Could this tightness be caused by my sprained ankle? Or could it be my heelcord tightening?
Should I go see my orthopedic surgeon anyway, though when I went to Emergency last wk they told me that my ankle would be fine in a couple days?
