Could your ankle pain be Achilles tendinopathy?

“Achilles Tendinopathy” not the old money term of “tendonitis” is different from the latter as it is the long-term overuse that results in a deterioration of the tendon without any associated inflammation. This is then similar to many tendon injuries, such as tennis elbow and golfer's elbow. Whereas “tendonitis” is the inflammation and irritation which causes a deep, nagging pain that limits easy, comfortable movements.
