I hope you get some answer soon. Feet/ankle issues are hard to diagnose and treat because of the large number of bones and connective tissues located from our ankle down. Considering 1/4th of all our bones in our body are located in our two feet, you can only imagine the complexity of diagnosing, much less treating an injury like this can be.
Unfortunately because runner's injuries are so complex in that the source of the pain, may not be the cause of the pain, it is almost next to impossible for any of us to offer suggestions as to what can be done to treat this issue.
Recently I have been experiencing ankle pain on my left ankle. It started out as a "clicking" feeling, no it feels stiff and almost like I twisted or sprained it. I went to a chiropractor last week who also specializes in sports med. He did some electrolysis work on the calf, and adjusted the ankle. It was feeling better when I left, just stiff. He said to run on it the next day to see how it felt, but when I woke up the next day it was still a little sore so I just did some yoga instead. I did run the following day, 3 miles, on the TM. It was stiff at first, but seemed to get a little better. Yesterday my hubby and I ran 5.5 miles outside. He told me to not run on the outside of the road, which made sense cause I could see my foot/ankle slanting down, which would make it stretch and hurt. Today I did P90X2 Total Body workout. After that, I wanted to do some Turbo Fire to get some cardio in. I had stop a few minutes into it, it just hurt too bad to be jumping around.
Anyways, has anyone else experienced similar pain, and what did you do for it? I'm been alternating Motrin with Naproxen, icing it, and doing stretches. I go back to the chiro on Tuesday. Thanks in advance!
