My Achilles Tendon popped loud and it hurt but...

I was sitting down and I went to pull my feet up from the floor, I hear and feel a loud pop in my achilles tendon, hurt pretty good too. I checked out the symptoms of an injured tendon and it says that I should have difficulty lifting my toes while standing but right now there is only aching. I can lift my toes and walk its just that the area around my tendon aches. What do you think?

I just had my Achilles tear in June of last year and tore it again in September. Same tendon different spot. The first tear I was playing flag football and it felt like someone hit me with a bat. There was also a very loud pop... everyone on the field thought I broke a bone. The second tear... I had no idea until I went to physical therapy. I was walking on it with no pain. The pop sound is something you will never forget. Did it feel like someone just hit you with a bat over the ankle? If the answer is yes, you just ruptured your Achilles. Do not walk on it because if your calf didn't roll already it will. Get to a orthopedic surgeon and get that bad boy fixed.

I don't know if it felt like that...You know when you pull your toe up to your knee and you get that little pop? Well it felt like that except big and it hurt.

I'll tell you how you can check yourself...
Go to a couch or bed, have your knees on the edge of the bed or couch so that from the knee down is hanging off. Have someone squeeze your calf. If your foot moves back and forth your tendon is still connected. if there is no foot movement then you have a tear. Have them squeeze toward the bottom of the calf and your foot should move back and forth.

There is movement when I squeeze my calf. Right now I can move everything, it just aches and feels like it want's to pop more. I mean I can stand up on my toes, I can lift my toes up while standing, I can move it around...I don't know what to make of it really. I mean I was just sitting down on the floor, I go to bring my foot back towards me and WHOOPAH! It was a big pop and it hurt. I don't remember if it was a loud pop or just felt big, I'm not even certain how bad it hurt or if it was just startling. I know it doesn't feel great right now...
