Achilles Spur - What a pain

I've been suffering with an 'Achilles Spur' the last couple of years.

Though I am very careful, if flares up and causes a lot of pain on and off.

As I write this, I am at home nursing the heel again. Pain-killers help a little. The the heel-insert in the shoe doesn't help a lot. Looks like I'll end up having a surgery.

My advice: Don't be barefoot while playing and wear sandals at home. That's one thing I never did when I was young

Here is what I have: ( Bone growth into the Achilles near the heel )
