Our expert says:
No, I don't think the pain is due to the Tarlov cysts. You may have achilles tendonitis and may need some physiotherapy and anti-inflammatory medication. Try wearing a low heel (1-2 cm) to take the stress off the tendon. If the joints are warm, reddish, swollen and/or stiff you may need to see your doctor for tests to see if you have an underlying inflammation that may need treatment. Another cause for the pain could be Fibromialgia which is a painful muscle condition that develop due to lack of proper deep sleep.
