Tendonitis?

Anyone out there have any recommendations as to who to see to relieve Achilles Tendonitis? It disturbs during the night when at rest...
Google says it's caused by excessive sport but I don't think my Domino's playing can be the reason 😁.

Am awaiting for the latest bill, due soon...but I suspect a ( worthless?) Trip to the Electricity Board will be on the cards...
