When I was running last week, I had to jump over a pot hole and I heard a pop in my leg. I had a sharp pain and had to walk the rest of the way home. My leg is a bit sore now, but it's not too bad as long as I favor my foot. Could I have torn my Achilles tendon?
While only a doctor can diagnose you by examining your leg and listening to your history, the symptoms you describe do suggest that a ruptured Achilles tendon is a possibility. The signs and symptoms of a ruptured Achilles tendon include: - Pain, possibly severe - Swelling near your heel - Inability to bend your foot downward - Inability to stand on your toes on the injured leg
