Hello Forum; I woke up this morning and after my morning cup of tea I started having these very intense (sharp stabbing) pains on the inside of my ankle just below the calf. The very odd thing about it - it hits with out warning and lasts for 5-6 seconds. Then it stops completely for 8 minutes and then hits again. This has been going on all day now. The pain level is a 10. There is no warning of any type, just an instant 10 for 5-6 seconds, then stops. I have had no injury, there is no swelling or soreness. My wife and I have searched the net and have found nothing that comes close to this symptom.

Can anyone out there tell me what this might be? Someone could stab me with a knife and I don't think it would hurt any worse. HELP
