Question: Pain in both the ankles


 indrajitkuri - Thu Aug 26, 2004 1:56 am

I am suffering from pain in my both the ankles. Visited a doctor who recommended X-ray for both the ankles. Nothing could be found in the X-ray report. He then suggested for ultrasonic massage and advised wearing soft padded footwear. This was some two years back. My weight is around 70 Kgs, which I do not consider too much for my legs to bear.

I took the treatment for a month and my pain subsided.

I have also started wearing soft padded footwear.

Now, the pain has restarted. It pains while walking/standing for a long time. Pressing ankles also causes a lot of pain.

Kindly advise what has happened and what treatment should I take.

User avatar Dear Indrajitkuri,

You have to be seen by your doctor again to make sure that the ankles are not inflammed or swollen because they are tender when you press on them.

Recurring pain in the big joints like ankles can be caused by a group of diseases known as crystal induced arthritis such as gout.

Thank you very much for using our website http://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.

Yasser Mokhtar, M.D.
