I woke up today with pain in the back of my leg above the around and above the ankle. I managed to hobble/shuffle my way to class tonight and sat through it with the pain getting worse. Afterwards, I went to the ER and saw a doctor. He didn't do any x-rays but he felt around and made me wiggle my toes and stuff. He said there's a chance I could have snapped my achilles tendon. On a pain level it varies anywhere from from 6-10 (10 being the highest). He put me on vicoden and prednisone and told me to see my doctor in a couple of days if it isn't feeling any better. It's happily throbbing away which is making me very unhappy. Vicoden is useless, I should have asked for something stronger. I just hope it isn't torn.
