I haven’t posted in a very long time, but thought I’d give some follow-up on my case and get some feedback from others. I ruptured my right Achilles’s tendon back in September and surgery. Uneventful recovery and I’ve been back on two legs since November-ish. I’m back at the gym and finally have the green light to run again. However, I still have significant heel pain by the end of the day. I notice this is especially the case when I’ve taken a long walk or exerted myself physically with my legs. I’m a little worried that this may be a chronic occurrence and that running might worsen it. I’m curious what others may have experienced.
Also, a question. Does anyone know if the quinine in tonic water may contribute to ATR? I know the quinolones have been linked and the two are chemically similar, but I can’t find anything definitive in the net. My favorite drink is (I mean, used to be) G&T. I’m an odd because I really like the taste of tonic water and often I would just have the tonic water w/o the gin. But I’m wondering whether my consumption of quinine predisposed me to injury. I’d appreciate any info (and cites!) that others might have.
