Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
When did this happen?
can you stand on your tiptoe?
no - absolutely not - went to a friend who is a sports injury therapist and she did a Thompson test? told me I need an MRI?
I agree with you on that.
I think that you should be evaluated further for this.
You may require a surgery to repair it if you do have a ruptured tendon.
Not easy to get that - expensive - is there any other way to test if its only muscle not achilles?
You may also be able to feel a gap in the tendon.
too tender - lots of bruising under ankle and just above heel bone - could it be ankle?
Yes it could just be the ankle.
Even in cases of achilles rupture there are two approaches:
1. Surgical2. Non surgical.
Nonsurgical approach consists of restriction in a plaster cast for six to eight weeks with the foot pointed downwards (to oppose the ends of the ruptured tendon)
I think that you should go to the doctor again or go to the ER since you are severely symptomatic.
ER = emergency
