Try not to Google for information until you've been seen by a specialist to stop unnecessary worrying.

I have a pacemaker fitted in 2013 to deal with a heart block condition. My heartbeat had dropped to a low rate and was unsteady, I felt very tired and sick at times. Its set to 60 beats which is my normal, and its wonderful, no problems, I can still jog a mile every day. There is a monitor which records my heart details at night electronically.

Anyone, especially the runners, ever suffered with tendinitis in their Achilles?

Got it bad at the moment and canít seem to shift it, Iíve rested it, iced it, had acupuncture, ultrasound, massages - the lot.

Anyone got any ideas? Went for a 6 mile hike this morning and itís not happy with me.

You could try seeing a physiotherapist (easier said than done) or maybe discuss a cortisone injection with the Doctor if rest dosen't cure it.
I have a similar problem with tennis elbow.

Best thing I ever did as far as running injury prevention was go and get a free gait assessment in a running shop. They film you on a treadmill in a neutral shoe and then try you with other shoes and repeat to see how the different shoes affect things. A trainer at the gym noticed I was moving from side to side on the treadmill and suggested I was over pronating and I should get assessed for other shoes. I used to get pain that I assumed was shin splints and since I changed to a new type of shoe I havenít had any problems. The shoes wonít help you recover quicker from any injury you have currently but may prevent recurrence.

Could be a number of things
Over pronation as mentioned above might be worth a trip to someone like Run Swindon in old town to gait your gait checked

Can also be caused if you ramp up your miles too quickly especially if youíve not run regularly or just returned to running.

Do you run on your tip toes?
Make sure you are doing some cross train as well running itís important especially legs and core.

If it doesnít clear up highly recommend Danny Clayton heíll see you right

I went to Run Swindon last year, due to shin splints, and they were excellent. So for that reason I donít think itís running related. Iíve also cut down on it lately and just been walking more and doing general gym work.
I was playing Badminton most weeks too, which is when it started to get worse

But Iíve done next to nothing the last 2/3 weeks to try and give it a rest, and it doesnít seem to be getting much better at all. .
