I am currently waiting to have ESWT in Nov. But my foot pain is changing. I now also have pain on the Bottom outside lateral tendon, and my outside part of my ankle. could this be from walking funny due to the orginal foot pain?My ankle looks swellen.

Hmm. I see no one has responded. I'm sorry for that. I have to admit, I don't have a clue. Although if someone is swollen I'd call the doctor (maybe you already have).

Sometimes if someone responds, or the subject is changed it helps get some attention. We'll see.

Sounds like compensation due to the original heel pain. Give you doctor a call and see if he can help you with this

Debra..... I had that same problem. It came down to my doc thinking outside the box.. trying to get me to my ESTW appt. I was actually having Una Boots ( soft casts) put on my feet. Which helped with swelling as well as pain.
Hope you feel better...... Lorinda
