Previous Injury?: Hello, Five years is a long time to be suffering from this. Its time to get advanced imagining to find out what chronic pathology is causing the ankle effusion. There could be cartilage/soft tissue damage long standing. Consult a podiatrist or orthopedist. One may also wonder about lymph edema and its role in causing this. Feel Better! ...Read more

Direct impact to medial side of left ankle from slipping on wet stairs. X-ray does not show fracture, however foot doesn't plantar flex.?

Direct impact to medial side of left ankle from slipping on wet stairs. X-ray does not show fracture, however foot doesn't plantar flex.?

Don't wait.: I suggest you see a foot and ankle specialist ASAP. A directed ankle evaluation is needed to determine the nature of the lack of plantiflexion. The X-rays only show possible bony damage. Lack of motion can be from bone, muscle and tendon or even edema. The range of motion of the ankle joint needs to be assessed and this is best accomplished by a specialist that familiar with the anatomy. ...Read more

Pain in my left ankle inner bone and travels under my foot throbbing pain making it hard for me to walk u coldness X-ray and blood tests done nothin?

Plantar Fasciitis?: If the pain is worse in the morning, making it difficult to walk, and is better after walking on it awhile or stretching out your calves, it might be plantar fasciitis. If you are a runner or participate in sports that require running or jumping, such as basketball, volleyball, or tennis, then plantar fasciitis is a good bet. Check with your orthopedic surgeon to make sure it isn't something worse. ...Read more

6 yo boy has localized pain a couple inches above left ankle for about 10 days. Dr. said to do Xray or wait 1 week. Risky to wait? Concern for tumor?

Need history &: Physical findings to hazard a guess as to whether his localized pain is from tumor, trauma or infection. If he "twisted his ankle" 10 days ago, an X-ray would show disruption of the cortex of the tibia or fibula, if fractured. Is the pain on the medial or lateral side of his leg? Can he bear weight on that leg? Does he limp? Does the site have swelling, redness, heat or tenderness to touch? ...Read more

Left ankle swells after I work out. Foot tingles and shooting pain down leg from back. I have flat feet too. Xray & ultrasound normal. What is this?

Arch support: Not enough history given. If the pain starts in your buttock and goes all of the way down the leg to your foot then it is likely a radiculopathy--problem with a lumbar disc. If pain just in lower leg and foot could be just a foot problem but possibly still involve lumbar disc. Get good arch supports/better shoes to see if that helps. If not, see your doctor--possibly have lumbar spine MRI done ...Read more

Did X ray on L ankle. It's written on the film "weight bearing", but I was putting all my weight on R leg, not left. Does X ray need to be retaken?

Did X ray on L ankle. It's written on the film "weight bearing", but I was putting all my weight on R leg, not left. Does X ray need to be retaken?

Maybe: Depends on your injury. Many times weight-bearing films can be helpful, but not always necessary. There are subtle findings in non-weight-bearing films that can indicate instability without requiring a weight-bearing film. Also, there is some question how accurate these films are because most people, like yourself, don't put full weight down secondary to pain. ...Read more
