How long does it take for peroneal tendonitis to heal? I had pretty bad pain, it got better with pt, and now it feels irritated again...

It can take a while: It will not heal well taking cortisone or nsiads.

See you doctor about getting off those meds. ...Read more

I might have peroneal tendonitis, it feels better when I run. Is it safe to run the Boston Marathon tomorrow?

Pain is the key: You can attempt to run the race, but use pain as the indicator whether to continue. If the pain is causing you to change your stride, then you should probably not run as it could worsen the strain and/or cause other problems. Stretch it and massage it several times today and before the race. Be practical tomorrow if the pain is moderate to severe, you should probably not run. ...Read more

Is previous peroneal tendonitis the cause for my rolling my ankle twice in the last 2 months? Didn't have this happen before my tendinitis.

Could be: The body's initial response to injury or inflammation is often to shut down or weaken muscle groups around an injured joint. This makes sense in the first few days but also quickly leads to muscle atrophy and weakness. If you do not strengthen those muscles during your recovery, you will be exposed to reinjury. Persistent pain after ankle sprain could be sign of more significant injury. ...Read more

How can I distinguish between peroneal tendonitis or lateral malleolus stress fracture?
