Sudden, sharp heel pain/swelling on left inside ankle/heel

Posted by Beth V. on 9/08/02 at 21:21 (094780)

I have a sudden pain on the left side of my ankle, just about an inch above the heel, where there is some puffiness and it's very sensitive to the touch. In addition, when I step down there is pain in my heel, making it hard to walk. This just started today, but seems severe. I've tried putting ice on it, and rubbing it, but that just makes it hurt more. There almost seems to be a bump there, but it isn't on the bottom of my heel, so I don't know what it is. Can you point me in the right direction to figure out what this is?

Beth, read the heel pain book for starters - click on the link right here or at the top of the page.

See your doctor if it doesn't get better in a day or two.
