Ankle pain

Posted by Ruth T on 8/25/03 at 08:48 (127894)

I have been getting the occasional pain in the hollow between the achilles tendon and the ankle bone of my right foot (medial side). It happens at night, never during the day, and the pain wakes me up. It can be quite severe for several minutes or longer, and then it goes away. If I poke around, the pain seems to be localized more at the ankle bone itself.

It is not a problem to me (yet!) as it has never happened during the day or affected my walking or anything else, but I'd like to know what it is. I had PF a few years ago, which resolved with conservative treatment after several months and has not troubled me since. I doubt that this could be related - but could it?

I shall be grateful for your thoughts. Thank you.
