achilles tendonitis can cause pain and discomfort with walking.
The tendonitis should not cause a loss of muscle bulk or strength.

Does that answer your question?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
