Symptoms of TTS?

Posted by Mary G. on 11/28/03 at 18:29 (138898)

Hello: am beginning to wonder if I've been misdiagnosed for 2 years (NOT tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, tight muscles) because nothing I've tried (extreme measures) has worked. If I have TTS, would the arch of my foot be lumpy and swollen? My pain begins above my ankle bone, inside, and runs thru the bottom of my foot, though ankles are slightly less swollen with orthotics. Bottom of both feet VERY sore, though, and seem to be getting worse. Thanks.

It could be post. Tibial tendonitis. . Very simple to examine and confirm . A physical palpation of the tendon with placing the post tib tendon in plantarflexion or supination would produce pain. An mri would be very helpful if you want to confirm this diagnosis
