What happened to Gayle King’s foot?
Taking to Instagram in May 2022, Gayle King, 67, revealed to her followers that she was diagnosed with Achilles Tendonitis by Dr Nadia Levy.

According to the doctor, Gayle caused the issue by “over tweaking a tight tendon“.

In May, Gayle said that she had a boot fitted in order to treat the Achilles tendonitis and she was also prescribed anti-inflammatories.
The doctor said that Gayle would have to be in a boot “just to calm it down“.
She had to wear the boot for a short time and also managed to avoid having surgery.
In June 2022, Gayle updated her followers on her foot injury and revealed that she was having physical therapy and still had to wear the boot.

While dealing with Achilles tendonitis, Gayle has still had to work and attend events. Given that she has been having to wear a boot to help calm her foot injury, it was likely quite a relief on the days that she was able to swap the boot for a Croc.
Gayle can be seen wearing a Croc on her left foot as she’s been recovering from Achilles tendonitis.
Speaking of her doctor on June 2nd, Gayle wrote on Instagram that: “She’s terrific and very patient with my fifty million questions.”
