Achilles tendinitis (TMS) - keep running?

    Hey there!

    I’ve had great success healing all kinds of TMS symptoms over the last 2 years. In the last 6 months I’ve been walking, then running more and more. I am currently planning on running my first marathon this fall.

    I’ve noticed pain and stiffness in my Achilles during and after running. Fits symptoms of Achilles tendinitis.

    My question is, it’s TMS, right? Is all tendinitis TMS? It just seems so counter intuitive to keep running/walking with the pain and discomfort.

    But that’s what I did with other forms of TMS.

    My mind is just so repetitive and convincing when it says:

    “It hurts so you should stop. You’ll make it worse. You need to rest for days/weeks until pain is gone.”

    Thoughts?

    Thanks!

    I had Achillies tendonitis according to my doctor. Not going to lie, this is a painful spot to hurt. Mine would hurt when I just touched it or sat down sometimes.

    Running is very intensive on your body in general. Very high impact. What I would do is a test, run half a mile or a mile and see how you feel. If the pain continues during and after the run, probably too soon to keep running.

    The other question, are you hurting walking, going up stairs, etc? When I had this, I hurt going up stairs or walking a lot or uneven surfaces. If you are hurting in other areas, I don't think you should run yet.
