      I don't know what would be causing this pain. Maybe it's your tendons / ligaments, ask your doctor about it.

    Pain is your body's signal to "take notice" and find a means toward eliminating pain. See your doc with possible referral to orthopedic doc. Do your research and ask around who is the best orthopedic doc around that specializes in feet, ankles. Until then, elevate when you can. If you have inflammation, ice helps. Wear shoes that support your feet.... like a good walking or running shoe. Don't wear flats or ballet slippers.

    Keep us posted. Good luck.

      Thank you for your tips. Have seen 2 orthopaedic docs 1st said to do cryogenic therapy. Second one said MRI looks good put a brace. I started to have pins needles with the pain so wasnsent to a neuro and MRI showed L4-L5 herniation was given Gabapentin and told to double after pain worse. 

      The pain rin is really bad especially when I walk - even with a cane.

    I wore a boot off and on two years for peroneal tendonitis. Towards the end of all this against my better I had a steriod shot into the area at ankle/foot. After 6 more weeks in a boot my Othopedist could not do the surgery for other risks I had. So he sent me to another specialist. There I learned I had very high arches. Dr said I tendons would not ever get better until he corrected that along with tranfering the blown peroneal tendon to the brevis. Says that people with flat feet or high arches are suseptical to this. I did almost everything right and still ended with surgery. Called Calcaneal Osteomity with Tendon Transfer. I am 4 weeks post surgery. Doing OK but still no weight bearing. Good Luck.

      Wow that looks like major surgery. I feel for you - we try to take care of ourselves and still end up having surgery. Then you have people being careless and never get hurt. Life's so not fair. Just think how strong you will be soon. Imagine running with no pain. I am seeing 3rd orthopaedic soon - I hope he suggests operating cause the pain is depressing me - just curl up in a ball and sob. Meds useless and irritate stomach. Hang in there. Wishing you lightening speedy recovery wink
