In brief: Entrapment tibial n.

This is entrapment of the tibial nerve in the tarsal tunnel on the inside of the ankle.
This nerve entrapment causes pain and sensory loss in the heel and sole of the foot. There is also weakness of the small muscles that control toe movement.

In brief: Have it evaluated

Tarsal tunnel syndrome (tts), also known as posterior tibial neuralgia, is a compression neuropathy and painful foot condition in which the tibial nerve is compressed as it travels through the tarsal tunnel.
This tunnel is found along the inner leg behind the medial malleolus (bump on the inside of the ankle). Symptoms include pain, burning and numbness.
