I am not sure what the problem is but I have significant soreness along the back of my lower leg about an inch to two inches above my heel. I thought it might be my achilles but I also have swelling and discoloration around the inside of my ankle. At first I thought is was just a sore muscle but when I ran again and tried to stretch the soreness got worse. Any suggestions as to what it is and/or what I should do? Thanks in advance.

Any idea what brought it on? How long has it lasted now?

I have been running about 5-6 miles 4 to 5 times a week for the past several months. I unfortunately only have the opportunity to run on pavement. I also think my shoes have too much mileage and I am now looking for a new pair. If I had to guess I'd say its the shoes - I've never had an injury before. I do some hills but nothing extreme.

Based on the area of soreness, if it is indeed the shoe's fault, you would most likely be able to feel pressure from the heel counter riding too high and/or digging in above your ankle. Does this sound right?
