ive had my ankle fused in June been in a plaster cast for 6weeks followed by an airboot for 6weeks ,I'm out of the air boot allowed to walk. On foot only thing is the pain is across the front of my foot from ankle to ankle 

I had a tendon transfer in 2002   I asked the consultant what about the tendons he told me that they will be obsolete now whether that is adding to the complications as to why my ankle hurts so much

    Hi Heather

    Have any nerve conduction tests been mentioned at all?

    Have you been taking or are taking any antibiotics at all?

    What medication have you taken or are taking?

    I would suggest that you googgle antibiotic toxicity and also quinolone toxicity.

    Sometimes you van get these signs and symptoms from a neck and/or back problem.

    Have you had an MRI scan of your spine?  have you been tested for Vitamin D deficienct and/or osteoporosis?
