I have had several ruptured tendons in my feet over the past several years. I also have had five surgeries to fix them and several surgeries to fix pinched nerves all in my left foot. I am now starting to rupture tendons and get pinched nerves in my right foot which I am going for surgery next week for. I am 39 years old and I’m not over weight so I do not understand how or why this keeps happening..

I've been having tendon issues for years, after several accidents and falls. I also had plantar fasciitis. I had tendon surgery to nick the left Achilles after a fall that caused the plantar fasciitis. After a couple of years the tightness began again. It was so tight I had to stretch every hour or I'd lock up. I've taken several medications with tendon weakness a side effect. I also had several cortisone injections for leg pain. .
