Between the bottom of my foot and my ankle, it is very sore. What could be wrong? I just got new skates and they have been tight in that area. They havn't hurt this bad so i don't understand what's wrong.

In brief: There

There are several possibilities in this case.
Heel pain per se could be plantar fasciitis. Pain on the back side of the foot could be some achilles tendinitis. Based on the description of pain with skates i believe that ill fitting skates are causing an achilles tendinitis. Some individuals have bony prominences in the area called haglud deformity that could put added pressure to the area. Try another sport!
