    Hello sorry but I don’t know, I’m having lots of pain in my ankle had no diagnosis of yet but I think it’s osteoarthritis, my symptoms are pain and swelling and limited mobility, I’m on two crutches I also have pain and tenderness and swelling in my good foot. I broke my ankle in 1995 while working for Royal Mail and the pain in mainly in that area however can go all over the foot. It aches all night and when I turn in bed I have to bend my nees as my foot hurts to move. I’ve noticed my left foot has started to turn out and I’ve got mussel loss in the lower leg.
