It happened again and I'm glad. Two years ago, I had a severe stomach illness that put the nail in the coffin of my GE. Not sure how being sick heals tendons, but it did for me. Just had another less severe winter bug and my Achilles heels feel terrific and even my minor TE is gone. I pretty much have to poke those areas now with my fingers to feel anything. Of course, a fresh bed of gut helps the old elbow.
