tendonitis

hi my name is chris.i am a paramedic from the far north of canada.i have a question regarding achilles tendonitis.it started about a month ago as a pain in the calve that was very mild.over the last couple of weeks i have had pain at the base of the tendon and in the ball of the foot.it is described as a tight burning feeling when i extend my legs.what i found odd was that it is now in both achilles.swelling is minimal and the pain is not debilitating.my question is whether or not this could be indicative of a systemic problem or just a bad pair of steel toe boots.i am 27 years old and in otherwise good health as far as i know.my mother has tendonitis of the wrists that was a spontaneous cond with no related trauma such as myself.what's your diagnosis?
