Burning ankles: Burning ankles can be due to injury and tearing of the posterior tibial tendon or possible tarsal tunnel syndrome which is similar to a carpal tunnel syndrome but it occurs in your ankle instead of your wrist. It can be treated with a proper arch support. Not the doctor scholl inserts, they don't work so don't waste your money. See a foot and ankle specialist for an orthotic arch support.
