Default achilles tendonitis

I am having heel/ankle pain, which I think is tendonitis of the achilles tendon. I am seeing my doc on Wednesday, but in the meantime, has anyone had this? What did you do? what helped the most.
I cannot take advil (ibuprofen) or aspirin, or any other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like naproxen etc. due to severe allergies. I have been taking tylenol for the pain, and applying arnica twice daily. SOmetimes the pain wakes me up. I NEVER wear high heels. I stopped my yoga 2 weeks ago, and if anything, it is worse without the stretching.
Will it get worse if I keep exercising? I don't do a lot, but don't want to slow down!
Will orthotics help?
