When I wake up in the morning my right ankle really hurts. It hurts especially under the bone on the outside of my ankle and when I move my foot to the right. It is also painful to walk on it, but it loosens up after being on it for a while. This pain also occurs after sitting down or resting for a while. I didn’t injure myself so I don’t understand what’s going on with this. Does this have anything to do with me being flat-footed/what I can do to make it better? Any suggestions?
It could possibly be tarsal tunnel syndrome. Being flat footed increases the pressure in the tarsal tunnel and may cause the nerves to compress. Some common symptoms are:
Pain and tingling in the ankles
Painful burning sensation in the lower legs
Sensations of electric shock
Pain in the leg, arch, heels, and toes.If tarsal tunnel doesn’t fit, this does sound to me like a stress issue. Probably your being flat-footed has caused a tendon in your ankle to become irritated and hurt a lot when you move it.
For starters, I’d suggest giving your foot a break. Minimize walking and running, and wear the most supportive shoes you can find. This might be a time to look into getting Dr. Scholl’s insoles, or a really supportive pair of running shoes. Supportive shoes will redistribute the pressure on your foot to make it less of a burden your your heel tendon. You might also try gentle massage and stretching of the ankle, see if that makes it feel better or worse. Icing it for ~20 minutes a day (no more than that) might also help to take any inflammation down.
Good luck! If it doesn’t get noticeably better or clear up after a week or two of rest and support, it might be time to see a doctor. The doctor may be able to give you a medication or a special wrap to help out your specific injury.
