ANKLE PAIN FAQ

How can I tell if I have tendinitis in my ankle ?

There are a great many tendons that cross the ankle joint. These tendons are the attachments for the muscles of the lower leg many of which are just passing through on their way to insertions on the foot bones. Ankle tendonitis or ankle tendinosis as we prefer to call it these days is caused by microscopic wear and tear in an ankle tendon. 

The primary symptom associated with ankle tendonitis/ ankle tendinosis is pain related to movement. Some cases of ankle tendinitis generate sharp sudden ‘catching’ or ‘pinching’ pain felt at certain times and in certain positions. Other cases of tendinitis manifest as difficulty bearing weight or moving without what feels like pain from the joint. Achilles tendinitis/tendinosis is soften associated with obvious thickening of the tendon. 

Web based information like this can be an excellent way to raise your ‘health IQ’, we do however advise against self diagnosis. If you have persistent ankle pain and you suspect it could be tendinosis or tendonitis  get yourself to someone professionally trained to diagnose ankle pains. 

What are the possible causes of ankle pain with no swelling ? 

Scar tissue, tendonitis, flat feet, muscle weakness, unresolved sprains, arthritis, joint infections, bone diseases and even gout can cause ankle pain with no swelling. It’s more probable that you have some scar tissue, weakness or an unresolved sprain than anything more serious. Persistent pains however are not supposed to be ignored, so see a trained health professional if you are having problems. 

Do I have ankle arthritis? 

There are many pain conditions that can feel very much like the onset of ankle arthritis. The only reliable way to know if you have ankle arthritis is by a combination of a physical exam and X Ray. It is worth being aware that confirming that you have ankle arthritis doesn’t also mean that your pain is arthritic pain. Many people for example have ankle arthritis and ankle tendonitis and find that it was in fact the tendonitis causing their pain. 

As you may have gathered we advise against attempts at self diagnosing conditions like ankle arthritis. If you have stubborn pain and stiffness in one or both of your ankles that is proving to be persistent seek professional advice.
