I started getting ankle pain in my left ankle (above the outside ankle bone). If I do sustained walking for more than 5-10 minutes the pain starts and builds until I am unable to walk.

I had both a lumbar MRI & one of the ankle. The Lumbar was inconclusive. The Dr. who read the ankle MRI said it was a split tear in the brevis tendon. Went to an ankle surgeon who took additional x-rays. He said he saw nothing unusual..no tear. There is no swelling. You can poke and prod the ankle area and it does not hurt. He suggested I go see a spine surgeon. In the meantime he gave me an ankle brace to wear to see if it helps. It feels good but I still get the pain with any walking.

This had shut my life down!! Please help if you have any suggestions. Thank you.

  • Pain is the most worst sorrow in the world. we walk on foot that is with the ankle and knee joint. so foot pain makes us work less as well as penny less. we mus be careful about this pain. initially ankle pain is more common due to spain. in this time need elastic bandage with painkiller support being with anti ulcer drug. you may take 'ketorolac' initially as a pain killer.
