achilles pain, bone spur?

I get a lot of exercise for a 49 yr old. (since my 5 bypasses). I play recreational basketball 4x a week. While playing, I developed disabling pain from my lower calf to the top of my heal. The injury felt like a sprain that got progressively worse over a 20 minute period. I took a week off and the pain eased, and retreated to the area where the achilles anchors to the top of the heel. But, it returns when I resume activities. The pain can be rather sharp, and I wonder if I have a spur that is irritating the tendon.

The proprietary gel also provides extra protective padding to help comfort the pain caused by metatarsal soreness. May be used for relieving the burning sensation under the metatarsal heads, calluses and tarsal fat pads.
