Repost in correct place.

Ive had pretty bad pain around the back of my ankle for the past 5 or so days. Some days worse than others and then yesterday I barely noticed it. Today however it's agony and radiating up my calf muscle again. On and off it's red and slightly puffy looking.

I suspect it's to do with my achilles heel,
tendonitis perhaps?

I can't get to my GP today, but I wonder if a minor injury clinic could assess me?

In my mind minior injury clinics are for sports injuries etc.. But I honestly can't pin point any activity that started the pain. It was just there one day. I'm 35 weeks pregnant and have gained 11+lbs so perhaps it's the weight gain that's caused it?
