Get ankles evaluated: Sharp pains in the ankles with activity can be caused by numerous issues. This can be either a bone and joint issue or soft tissue, such as a tendon problem.

What causes sharp pain at the back of my ankle? The pain comes and goes and when I have the pain it hurts so bad i can't walk on it. Its not swollen
Achilles tendinitis : The most likely cause for this type of pain is what is called achilles tendinitis. This is a small tear of the achilles' tendon or inflammation around the tendon. Some simple ways to prevent this is to do some stretching exercises. You could also benefit from a custom orthotic. I would recommend seeing your foot and ankle specialist such as a podiatrist or orthopedist to prevent further injury. ...Read more

Achilles tendinitis: This could be achilles tendinitis ( an inflammation of the tendon in the back of the ankle that promotes ankle plantar flexion(pushing down against the ground to push off to walk).

I am having recurrent very sharp pain in my ankle which was injured about 5 years ago in a fall. It was not broken, took years before i stopped having intermittent sharp pains when walking, particularly if i walk on uneven surfaces. I have done nothing
How's : How's the weather down there in dallas? I ask, not to be snotty, but because one of the possibilities is you're developing arthritis, which is typically made worse with weather changes. The other thought that comes to mind is a talar dome fracture. The talus is the bone that connects the ankle bones with the foot. The "dome" is the top part. Some talar dome fractures are so tiny that they aren't seen on x-ray, and if the "cuts" in the ct scan you had weren't small enough (close together), a small talar dome fracture could escape detection in a ct scan as well. What happens in talar dome fractures is, since the entire dome of the talus is cartilage (and cartilage is not visible on x-ray), the blood supply to it is poor. That little piece of bone could slowly rot away, or break free and start rolling around inside the ankle joint, grinding away at the cartilage, producing arthritis. Start with getting it re-x-rayed, and if nothing is still showing, a ct scan or MRI with 3 mm cuts in three planes would detect an occult talar dome fracture. Hope this helps. Good luck and feel better! ...Read more
