Outside ankle pain

Posted by Alma on 12/27/02 at 08:36 (104094)

Please reply as to why I am experiencing ankle pain on the outside of my foot? I have been treated for severe PF for the past year by a podiatrist & I have also had my ankles injected to help alleviate this problem...I do wear orthotics...but this pain still persists. What is causing it? And, what can I do to help it & what can I ask my dr. next time in regards to this pain around & below my ankle bone on the outside? Can anyone explain?

this sounds similar to the pain I have and I was told it is tendon pain. mri showed tears in peroneal tendon on outside of ankle have you told your dr about it?
