It hurts all around my ankle & when I step on it there's a sharp pain in my tibia, ankle, and foot. If I bend my foot it hurts bad. My ankle gives out?

What did you do: Tap on the tibia and see if vibration causes pain. If yes, need x-ray. If no, sit on chair wit bad ankle across other knee (figure 4). Gently draw the alphabet with bad foot. Focus on letters that hurt. Two times a day for three days, if no better, see a doctor.

Sciatica?: You are desscribing a condition called sciatica. This is an irritation of the sciatic (cy-attic) nerve as it come off your lower spine. This can be due to disc protrusion or arthritis or instability of the vertebrae. Usually treated with rest, heat or ice, anti-inflammatories and keeping the knees bent slightly. May need parenteral anti-inflammatories and pain meds and pt. See your pcp. Google.

Sharp pain in my Achilles area when I bend my foot certain ways?

Tendonitis: Achilles area pain often is tendonitis. If the tendon is tender to the touch, esp. More than the opposite side, then it's probably the Achilles. Consider causes (exercise, poor footwear, etc.) and try to avoid exacerbating factors. Rest, ice, a short-course of NSAIDs, better shoes would be considerations.

I have a very sharp pain in my ankles when I walk short distances and rollerblade. What to do?

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. My first suggestion would be to have your feet/ankles examined by a foot and ankle specialist, like a podiatrist to help find the reason for your pain.
