This morning, she told me her achilles tendon was hurting before she got out of bed. I thought she was exaggerating when she crawled all the way upstairs, but then she was unable to bare any weight on that foot when she tried. I left her with a neigbour while I went to a doctor's appointment and when I came back a few hours later, it was a little sore and she was able to walk.
She had a similar pain a couple days ago in the afternoon, but it cleared up before the evening. She has also complained about her knees in the morning, telling me she needs to get two canes so she can walk. But again, a few hours in, it seemed to go away.
Does anyone have any ideas what the root cause could be? I know we should take her to a doctor, but I'm curious if anyone has had similar experiences.
