NO lower back pain or problems.
if i had pain in the lower back wouldnt it be going down my leg?? Also ca nerve entrapment or TTS be present without numbness or tingling in the toes or bottom of the foot? just localized inner ankle pain and occasional buzzing vibration only in inner ankle??????

samuel, I think I know what you're referring to. I have had it also, but I do not know what it's from. I think I used to get it a lot more often than I do now.

Unfortunately, I have never had a definitive diagnosis for what is wrong with my feet (maybe I have TTS, maybe not) so I can't tell you what it's from.

If the buzzing is the same, it does not really hurt - it is just a really annoying, weird feeling. It happens in one very isolated specific spot (not a broad general area).

Sound close?

I have the same thing along the side of my ankle and into my foot. A PT told me it was from a nerve being partially pinched. Don't know if that was right or not. Diana

Hi Julie

As there are two of us, Dorothy suggested yesterday that one of us use an initial (first letter of surname). Would you mind being the Julie that does this? As I have been around here for four years, and everybody knows me as 'Julie', that would seem to make sense. The problem is of my making because I never started using an initial, as I should have.

Thanks, Julie

Julie :)

Julie, I've been diagnosed with many things - but the doctors cannot agree on what I have. Maybe I have TTS, maybe I have RSD, maybe I have rheumatoid arthritis, maybe I have vasculitis. Maybe I have none of those things - maybe I have something that is unique only to me. And you!

Wendyn: If you don't have a feeling of entrapment (preferably nervy in some way) specifically at the inner ankle area that is driving you crazy much of the time, I'd be reluctant to jump to a TTS diagnosis. Do you have that feeling?

Elliott, I beieve that used to have that almost all the time. Now - not so much. I do not jump to a TTS diagnosis - but I have had several doctors tell me that's what I have. Now I have a doctor who disagrees.
