Aching achilles tendons
Whenever I lie down for any period of time, I find it difficult to walk when I get up again, especially after a night's sleep, as my Achilles tendons really ache - what causes this?

Hallo Mary
This is normally caused by inflammation - may help to see a biokineticist for stretching and special insole for your shoe( see on under medical for one near you)
