King uploaded a selfie to Instagram on May 20 that was taken at a doctor’s office. She also added a video where Dr. Nadia Levy explained the treatment required for the injury. 

“Achilles tendonitis,” Dr. Levy said. “And she’s going to have to be in a boot just to calm it down and on some anti-inflammatories,” she explained. 

“Yay, diagnosis, and yay, no surgery!” King said in the clip.

King noted that she doesn’t “know what [she] did wrong,” to which Levy said she “just over tweaked a tight tendon.”

“That’s me. Over tweaking a tight tendon,” King said. 

“Hobbled in with a clog hobbling out with this very attractive boot,” she added in the caption.
