Hi all - I am in a moon boot for vertical tears in my Achilles' tendon. I find I can cope with the discomfort during the day but wearing it while sleeping (which I have been instructed to do, I wear it 24/7) is causing me great pain.
I am ok until I have be n sleeping around 3 hours, and then I wake in agony with pain in my ankle and my lower leg and knee. The only help is to them sleep in a chair for the rest of the night so that legs are in a normal seated position.
Is this normal? If so I will tough it out but is there any advice you can give me to decrease my discomfort?
