Ankle Tendonitis

I'm sat staring at the prescription from Doctor Gleason for physical therapy sessions trying to work out specifically which type of tendonitis I have in my ankle. I have to schedule my first appointment to fix the pain. Doctor Gleason said I have a form of Ankle Tendonitis and gave me some Celebrex as an NSAID to help reduce the swelling in my ankle. The MRI came back with very little besides some fluid in the joint and signs of inflammation of the tendon running along the inside of my ankle. I know it's not my Achilles tendon but it does mean I have to stop training for Atlanta at least in the short term. Grrr.
