what is tarsal tunnel?

Posted by Linda O on 11/08/04 at 08:21 (163205)

I have been diagnosed with PF it seems like after a year I would have some releive now i am wondering if there is more going on here.
What kind of a test do they do to find tts? does anyone have info on Peroneal Tendonitis? I lost my job over the pain in my feet knees legs &hips anyone else have these symtom?

My podiatrist says that if PF does not improve with treatment after a year it's probably TTS (I don't think he waits a year - I got to him 3 years after symptoms started).

The standard test for TTS is the NCV test. However, it's not definitive. Well, if it's positive, that's pretty definitive. But there are a significant number of false negatives so it's important to pay attention to symptoms too.
