dIAGNOSIS ARCHILLES TENDONITIS (ACUTE SEVERE)

HI
MY ORTHOPEDIC SPECIALIST HAD ME HAVE A MRI ON MY RIGHT ARCHILLES TENDON.I HAVE ACUTE TENDONITIS AND IT IS SEVERE. OF COURSE I HAVE ANTI INFLAMMATORY MED'S AND HAVE TO WEAR A WALKING BOOT UP TO MY KNEE FOR WORK.
EVERYTHING I READ STATES TO REST. I AM VERY ACTIVE AT WORK AT A DR'S OFFICE AND ON MY FEET ALL DAY. THE BOOT ALLIVIATES THE PRESSURE ON MY TENDON. BUT IS TOUGH TO BE ON ALL DAY. PUTTING ALOT OF PRESSURE ON MY LEFT LEG!
WHAT A DILEMMA DO I KEEP RUNNING AROUND OR STAY HOME AND REST THE FOOT!!! PAIN IS BURNING, ACHY, AND HURTS TO TOUCH. SEEMS LIKE AN NEVER ENDING BATTLE. ALSO HAVE CARPAL TUNNEL RIGHT WRIST SCHEDULED FOR SURGERY IN DECEMBER. ANY ADVICE WOULD BE A HELPFUL AND A NICE PRESENT FOR THE HOLIDAY. THANK-YOU MUCH!!!!

A layer of gel combined with a foot cover to help protect metatarsals and toes from friction and pressure. It also ideal for cushioning the ball of foot and provides warmth for people suffering from arthritis or poor circulation to the toes.
