I have had this ankle condition for years. I havent heard of anyone else with this wierd condition. I dont take meds for it, just bear with it, but would be nice to know what it is that I have.

It first surfaced when i was 16yrs old running across the street. My one ankle just froze up, It then really bad cramped ike pins and needle maybe too. I had to limp after 10 steps then it was fine. Since then it seemed to be there when i ran, and limped it off. This was over 20 years ago, and i still have the same thing going on. I did possibly stress fracture my one ankle a few years back the doc said at the ER, just from one step was fine, next one, i couldnt walk on it for weeks. That ankle has more flare ups since then, always with running, or even one day it was everytime I climbed up or off a curb, ( the bending it from that) Before then it was equal to either ankle ( i think) and it can still happen in my other ankle as well. Not sure if its actually the ankle or some area surrounding it, like a ligament off running from the ankle towards the top and forward.

It comes in flare ups as I can run for a block without it happening, or i can run a few steps and get the pain/freezeups. It still just goes away after limping , though since the injury that one ankle may linger longer and I put on the air cast I got when I went to the ER for the stress fracture (if that is what it was)

I have been told by one doctor it was Rheumatoid Arthritis, then my next doctor said No I dont get a fever with it, its just weak ankles

Anyone have this condition, or know what it may be? thanks
