Have had persistent lateral ankle pain - no swelling since March.
went to hospital because pain kept getting worse and had trouble walking especially first steps in the morning sheer agony had to hold on to wall to walk also had pins and needles feeling .
Then I had pain in my lower back so sent me for EMG and MRI.
Prescribed Gabapentin and tramadol which does absolutely nothing.
I have been taking Advil and extra strength Tylenol and getting worried since I did MRI of ankle and all it shows is calcification heel area - but pain is lateral ankle constant pain had to stop working because getting only couple of hours a night.
Was prescribed oxycodone which does nothing either - don't know what to do.
I think it is tendon related because I feel thick vein type on the side that hurts and the normal ankle has no ropes feeling
would appreciate if anyone would have any insight - have been to the doctor 4 times and getting nowhere
