I've recently had the results of an MRI on my foot. My symptoms have been a tender lump on my achilles tendon and very painful heel which affected my walking. The consultant told me that I have plantar fasciitis and my achilles tendon is twice the thickness it should be.
Although the consultant has discharged me, he has told me to come back if the pain continues - I've had physio, which has helped - and he will give me an injection. I'm going to avoid this, if possible.
So, two questions. Is the thickness of my achilles tendon caused by scar tissue - damage and then healing? Does this damage mean that there is a greater possibility of it rupturiing in the future?
