Have done something to the back of my ankle - basically on the achilles tendon area. Has been sore for 3 days now, like a strain or pulled muscle/bruised kind of feeling.

Just wondering if its ok to keep on exercising on it or if I should give it a rest til it goes - I know achilles can be nasty if you damage it.

use it gently but stop if it hurts !

Can use ibuprofen to help reduce swelling but if you do be doubly careful not the overdo it when using your ankle.
