Keep free & elevate: Staying in a position for a prolonged period can cause a sprained ankle to feel stiff and aggravate pain. You can try keeping the ankle out from under the covers so it's not "restricted" or could try elevating it up on a couple pillows while sleeping - elevation also helps with relieving swelling and overall pain. ...Read more

Ankle pain that is worse at rest. What can I do?

Deep ankle pain at times a soreness. Sometimes worse with dorsiflexion. Worse on days I run and I noticed that I tend to overpronate sometimes.

Deep ankle pain at times a soreness. Sometimes worse with dorsiflexion. Worse on days I run and I noticed that I tend to overpronate sometimes.

Cartilage injury: Although it is unusual to have early arthritis at such a young age it is possible that an injury to the Cartlidge of the ankle took place even while in school and now impact as well as dorsiflexion can apply pressure to the Cartlidge of the dome of the talus or The distal tibia. Usually anti-inflammatories will help as well as icing and elevating but impact sports may be a bad idea ...Read more

Left hip and left ankle pain at dawn every night for the past week. No injury. What is the cause?

Left hip and left ankle pain at dawn every night for the past week. No injury. What is the cause?

VERY HARD TO ANSWER: With no injury a hands on exam is needed. Could be due to phlebitis as a woman in your age group. Your PCP is a good place to start. More so if by the end of the day you have swelling of that leg. You would see imprints from sox, or shoes fitting tightly by end of the day.

good luck! ...Read more
