Guest alliecat93 Posted June 3, 2003 Report Share Posted June 3, 2003 I have a problem with my Achilles tendons that is prevalent in both feet, but mainly in my left. It hurts so bad in my Achilles just to go up on pointe. This usually happens during the middle of a combination and I just keep going, but I'm always afraid that I will injure it. I'm pretty tough when it comes to pain- I have open blisters on almost all of my toes and I dance 6 days a week without padding-, but sometime it hurts so bad that I'm almost in tears. I would never be one to speak up if something hurts or if I think I can't go on, but I'm starting to question myself now. Should I inform my teachers of my problem and ask them what I should do? Also, would it be better to just finish the combination on flat, rather than going up to pointe in pain? After almost ever exercise I stretch out my Achilles and they feel okay, but then halfway through the next combination they start hurting again. Is this somewhat normal or is it something I should be alarmed about? Quote Link to comment
