Yes: Yes, peroneal tendonitis can commonly cause a popping sensation in the lateral ankle along with pain with walking or standing, especially on a surface that is on an incline or is uneven. It may also cause some tenderness on the outside of the ankle along with occasional swelling but this is not always seen. Rest and strengthening exercises often help along with taping of the ankle.

Tightness/snapping: With tendinitis there is tightness especially after rest. With subluxation there is often a snapping or popping sensation as the tendon moves out of place.
When can I resume running after suffering from peroneal tendonitis? I have been resting for 4 weeks and the pain has fully subsided.
If pain free: You can start running with proper supportive footwear. Start at a very low distance and build up slowly no more then 10% increase in distance from the previous week. You may also need to look into why you got this in the first place (running/gate mechanics, arch anatomy, footwear, etc.).
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. You are taking symbicort (budesonide and formoterol). That will stop the tendon from healing and it may actually cause the tendon to rupture once it has been injured. See you doctor about getting off those meds.See 2 more doctor answers
What is peroneal tendonitis? And what causes it? Can you get it from overuse without an acute injury? Back and outside ofankle and even calf nerve hurt
Overuse/Compensation: Peroneal tendonitis is an inflammation of the tendon and tendon sheath complex of the peroneus longus and brevis tendons. These tendons arise from muscles in the outside of the lower leg and course behind the fibula (ankle bone on outside of ankle). Walking on the outside of the foot (often to avoid pain on the inside of the foot or heel) can lead to this condition as can a bad ankle sprain.
As a runner, not being able to run because of peroneal tendonitis is a huge pain. Is it advisable to use a stationary bike instead? While I heal?
I was diagnosed with peroneal tendonitis. After 5 weeks, it doesn't hurt when I walk but only when I touch the area. Is it ok for me to run again?
I developed peroneal tendonitis /and or lateral overload syndrome after my plantar faciitis seems to be almost resolved. Is it the same treatment.?
Not really: The orthotics may be used but would need evaluated. Certain exercises would be different also - see a podiatrist to make sure.
Have peroneal tendonitis but insurance doesn't cover physical therapy. Is there anything I can do myself?
Some initial Rxs: Local treatment by icing region several times a day along with use of OTC NSAIDs like Aleve (naproxen) if you have no allergies or stomach issues with these medications. Can also try a shoe insert such as a Donjoy Arch Rival which can provide for some lateral wedge support -if no improvement see an orthopedist, physiatrist or podiatrist.
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.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
