I had an extreme injury to my ankle in Sep of 2007, I had surgery to repair ligament damage on the outside of my ankle in Jan 2008. I got pregnant and had no pain until I started running again. I now have extreme pain on the inside of my ankle. It mainly feels as though I am coming down on a knife. The pain is on top of the round boney part on the inside of my ankle. If you place your finger there it feels as though the pain is inbetween the bone and the large tendon running down the top of your foot. When pushed on or touched the pain is really really bad. I have been given 4 weeks of physical therapy and the pain actually seems worse after my sessions. They use ultrasound and the heat feels really good, just later in the day and evening I get a throbbing pain that won't go away. any help would be greatly appreciated since my ortho doc simply said to pt more and the pain should get better. Hi Diane,The only help I can give you is that if you have gone through 4 weeks of physical therapy and have not experienced any real relief than your doctor needs to start thinking "outside the box". In a similar situation I would order an MRI to see if anything more severe is going on. Unfortunately an x-ray alone many times does not tell the whole story.Press your doctor to further investigate the problem.Marc Mitnick DPM

Thanks for a most interesting website, which has helped a lot.
I usually do my research on the Mayo clinic website. I think your website is the most informative site I have found when researching foot pain.
I thank you for putting together this incredible website.
....I have been told that it is not hard enough to be cut off. Please help, I am not sure what to do now! THANKS FOR A WONDERFUL AND VERY HELPFUL SITE!
You have an unusually clear, informative and well-written website for laypersons. Thank you for that.

First, I'd like to thank you for all the information that you provide on your website and the opportunity to write to you.
First, I want to let you know that you have the best web site I've found related to foot issues. (The only thing I had difficulty finding was the "ask a question" page.)
I received the orthotics Monday afternoon and began wearing them Tuesday. After two days I would say that I have noticed a huge improvement in the discomfort I have been experiencing. My foot feels better than it has in months.
I greatly admire someone like you who would donate and dedicate so much time and effort to helping strangers with no compensation. Truly, it is uncommonly kind. And your site is so intelligently arranged.

I used to work for a podiatrist (front desk) back during summers in
college years ago, so I know the benefits of good care. Again, I want
to thank you for an EXCELLENT website. It was so great to get to your
site (top of google search) and actually find all the answers I needed
EASILY and QUICKLY! Clearly you put a ton of work into it and I really
All the best,
By the way, millions of websites could use yours as a guideline on how to organize information and make the site user-friendly. Kudos to you!
Thank you for your very interesting and informative site!
