does tarsal tunnel syndrome present itself with ONLY LOCALIZED INNER ANKLE PAIN? I have inner ankle pain but no numbness tingling or burning. it has been like this for 2 1/2 months.

Is the tarsal area swollen? From what I have seen and experienced tts presents itself in many fashions. It's always best to talk to your doctor.

I wish I could tell you what to do. Place a post on the ask a doctor board. They may be better at telling you what to do medically.

You are going to have a tough time getting well if you continue to stay on your feet. Can you get a temporary sit down job in the post office? It's extremely important to rest. Non weightbaring exercise is ok. Like swimming and light stretching. Healing takes a long time!

Mine presented with numbness. Followed shortly by the pain.
If you have not seen a podiatrist go now!!!

My mistake was waiting 6 months for a proper diagnosis.

seem my post about misdiagnosed pt tendinitis being TTS. You need nerve conduction studies to see for sure.
