Strange Achilles Pain

So here's my issue. The other day I woke up and started to stretch. I got this sharp pain in my achilles; it felt like when you bend your elbow when it has a scab on it, it feels like it's tearing. The strange thing is that this pain only shows up when my leg is straight and the achilles is stretched. I still have all the strength in it, and I can run fine. Any ideas what this is and how to treat it? I've been resting for about 2 weeks and it hasn't really changed.

Pro-Tec Athletics' J-Lat Knee Support helps guide the patella back into proper alignment with gentle pressure from the lateral to medial direction. Compression surrounding the patella will help keep it in the patella-femoral groove.
