I have got Achilles Tendonitis (severe pain in my Achilles tendon at the back of left foot) due to car driving and using the clutch excessively, I have not had any injury. Could it be due to uric acid and a gout attack? I have had past history of uric acid? should I take Feburic along with Combiflam. I am 48 years old, weight is higher than normal.

Just use ice pack for 15 min over the painfull area. After relieving from pain try to do some stretching and strengthening exs. Ultrasonic therapy is also help with icepacks.
