Hold Everything.: You need to stop running immediately and have your ankle reexamined. Not doing so puts you at risk for further damage. The shooting pain could very well indicate nerve involvement. There is a possibility that the initial injury was under diagnosed. ...Read more

Sprained ankle 5/2 felt something snap the other day pain unbearable non weight bearing xray normal pain moving up the leg to just under the knee

More eval/testing: With that type of pain, you will benefit from a very detailed exam to uncover the cause of your symptoms. It's difficult to advise you of the potential problem with this very brief description. If x-rays are normal and the diagnosis is in doubt, then an MRI is often the next best test. For now, it sounds like crutches while upright, rest, ice and elevation would be wise before seeing a physician. ...Read more

I received a cortisone shot 4 days ago in my nervE sprained my ankle and he said tarsal tunnel is it normal to have my foot up to my knee to be cold?

I received a cortisone shot  4 days ago in my nervE sprained my ankle and he said tarsal tunnel is it normal to have my foot up to my knee to be cold?

Can you specify: Where you received the cortisone shot?.....was that given by the ankle? In the region of the tarsal tunnel? The coldness you are feeling up to your knee may possibly be neuropathy caused by a radiculopathy. I would suggest an Emg/NCV study to rule out a "double crush syndrome" it's possible you have both a tarsal tunnel and a radiculopathy. I don't think your coldness is related to shot. ...Read more

Orthotics or brace: It is important that how your foot comes in contact with the ground that the weight is distributed evenly and not creating imbalance in the joints above, including the ankle. Consider the use of an orthotic and/or ankle brace that keeps the back of the foot (rearfoot bones) aligned and in a more efficient biomechanical position. Visit the podiatrist for a complete evaluation and assessment. ...Read more
