B) Achilles tendon
Testing for this can be done by doing a Thompson test. Having the patient lay prone (on their stomach). Squeeze their calf of the affected side (side of pain or other changes).

There is a black box with fluoroquinones that there is a potential for tendon rupture. There is increased risk for individuals >60yrs
