Yesterday, during a ride, I started to feel a strange an unfamiliar sensation at the "tip" of my right heel. It only manifested itself when I pushed down hard on the pedal.
There was no pain at all.
The location of the sensation was slightly (maybe 1/4-1/3") to the outside of the "tip" of my right heel, and perhaps slightly below the "rim" of the heel. I hope you understand what location I'm trying to describe.
The sensation itself could be described as if one small "bundle" of the Achilles tendon had become loose (although not detached) and that it sort of moved around laterally when it was put under strain from the load (when I pushed down on the pedal).
There was, as I said, no pain at the time, and there is no pain now either. I can't even find the spot by poking with a pointed object around that area. I've also been unable to provoke the same sensation again through calf raises, calf stretches or things like that.
Is this the beginnings of a rupturing Achilles tendon? Will I have to rest for several months now to avoid worsening the condition?
Has anyone else here felt something like what I'm describing?
