well it all started 3 years ago in grade 6, during resses i mad a long jump attempt in the sand pit, and i had a sharp pain in my ancle.It continued for several days, a few weeks of iceing it and taking tylonal my other ancle started to have hte same symptoms, so after it got to the point where it started to hurt very badly and was affecting y walking ability i went to see a docter. Now he beleived that i had torn my acheales tendonitis and that their was scar tissue that was sticking to the bone and was stretching my tendon. After a few weeks of seeing him and getting special massages that were soppose to release the tendon from the bone( by rolling the skin ) it continued to get worse. It got to the point where i could barly walk, i could not use my calf muscle what so ever/put no pressure on the ball of my foot, so i walked on my ancles. this continued for a month or so untill we went to see another docter. She beleive i had acheales tendonitis ( caused by a growth plate), and beleive it or not she was right. After seeing my docter, he sent me to go see a foot spacialist. Now he said i had fallen arches witch was causing f my ancle to be displaced and cause more pain. I got inserts and my ancle condition improved but did not by any means go away. The only thing my specialist said i could do is take ibuprofen( anti-inflammitory) and ice them. and to this day they no longer hurt. Apparently when you have the type of acheales tendonitis as i had cosistig of a growth plate, you eventualy grow out of it. im in grade 9 now and the symtons just dissapeared last this summer. Hope you enjoyed my story and i hope it helps
