I have had pf for over a year now and find on many days my ankles are hurting. They almost feel like they are badly bruised. My pain seems to shift constantly. One day it can be in the heel, the next in the toe joints, the calves, the arch or the ankles. I think it is all in the way you walk to compensate for the heel and arch pain. It throws the whole foot and leg off and make it so the feet are not functioning correctly. What are they looking for in the bone scans and blood work? So far I havn't found any help but I will continue to look. Good luck!!

no cure but be sure and ice the ankle/foot at least 2 times a day for 20 minutes and keep the foot or feet above your heart when possible.

another thing to help control swelling is 'support hose or stockings' which can be purchased at many drug stores.
