My name is Bonnie. My husband is 38 years old and broke his ankle 5 years ago. He still has pain in his ankle after all this time. He describes it as a dull ache. If you push in behind the ankle bone itself it hurts him greatly. We have seen 4 orthopedics(including the Hospital for Special Surgery), 2 podiatrists and 4 neurologists. No one can figure out why he has pain. His MRI'S are clear and his EMG didn't show any nerve damage. He has tried PRP therapy, acupuncture (twice),chiropractor (twice), myofascial release massage, many different anti-depressants, nerve pain medications, sural nerve release surgery(some doc told us it would help) and cartilage removal surgery. He does not have any hardware in his ankle. The poor man is beside himself. We do not know what to do next. They did suggest it was Regional Pain Syndrome. Not sure what to do next.
