TTS and veins: First you would need a circulation test including the veins then consult a vascular surgeon for the compression and an ankle specialist.

Compression may not : Work. The tarsal tunnel is most likely arising from an enlarged, varicose vein within the tarsal canal. The tarsal canal holds the posterior tibial artery, vein and nerve, as well as 3 tendons on the inside of the ankle. When there is swelling within the canal, often this swelling compresses the nerve causing your symptoms. If 20-30mm compression stockings don't help, you may need surgery.
