Brief overview of the episode:

The sign of retrocalcaneal bursitis/Achilles bursitis is heel pain. Which is most often brought on by a sudden increase in activity. Most commonly that is activities that are high in running or jumping. It can also be caused by blunt trauma or from wearing high heels.

Thankfully when treated early retrocalcaneal bursitis can resolved in as little as 2-3 weeks. If the situation has gone on for a long time and there is now visible signs of inflammation (redness, heat, fluid) present it can take 6 weeks or longer to resolve.
