Do I have a tight achilles tendon or muscle?

Question: Do I have a tight achilles tendon or muscle?


I am a volleyball player recovering from turf toe twice within a year. I was symptom free for 5 months, until 4/09. However,a new symptom also should up in my outer ankle on my left with the second bout of turf toe. I have started to return to the court with no pain today in the ball of my foot where the turf toe is due to the orthotics, but when I have attempted to run twice I am experiencing a tight pulling sensation near my achilles tendon and pain along with a pop that goes up the inside of my calf to the knee and stops. The pain only last while I jog and the faster I go. If I walk or stop the pain is gone. I would appreciate anyones thought if this a tight tendon/muscle.
