Hey everyone!

Well I came on here to see if other people were experiencing the same things I am.  Whoever came up with this site is genius!  Anyways I am 21 and sadly I tore my achilles tendon just like everyone else on here.  It is pretty sad to say that I tore it playing flag football!   I now learned to not engage in sports activities whenever I am running on 3 hours of sleep and not properly hydrated.  I heard the POP that everyone talks about and immediately knew that something was wrong.  Luckily for me I work in the imaging department at our hospital and our Radiologist was able to get me an Ortho very quickly.  It was not completely torn, but only threads of it were holding onto my calf muscle from what the MRI showed.

I am going on 2 1/2 weeks post-op.  The removing of the stitches hurt like crazy! Now I am in a cast and go back to the doctor next thursday. I was told that I will have a cast on for 6 weeks NWB.  This whole situation totally bummed me, but there are plenty of others out there going through this! Well I started this to see if anyone has experienced a burning sensation in their heel? If anyone else has gone through this let me know!  Thanks! :)
