About a week ago, I got off the lounge chair and felt a sharp pain in the back of my left ankle. The pain has not changed during the week. The whole ankle is still swollen. The pain has not changed, and it radiates from inside the heels up to my Achilles and into the lower back part of my leg. I can hardly walk. Three days ago I went to the hospital, wherein a portable ultrasound scan of the Achilles' tendon was performed, which revealed that it was still intact, but the doctors said it could be torn. About eight months back, I had an accident at the workplace and had torn my L5/S1 disc. And this had created a leaking disc and a bulge affecting the nerves in my legs. I had a nerve conduction test done, and the results were positive with nerve issues in my left leg, but I never had this pain before in this part of my foot. I have attached a photo of the back of my ankle, and you can see the Achilles' tendon is badly swollen. When it is strapped, it is a little better, but still painful. When it is unstrapped it is worse, and I can hardly walk on it. What do you think my injury is? Could it be related to my back and nerve injury? What treatment is available and what should I do now?
