Hi my name is Toni and I have been suffering with chronic ankle pain for two years . I have had re-occurring peroneal tendon/nerve pain for the past two years. This is a long a complicated story. I first injured my tendon in May of 2013 and was given a boot to wear for two weeks and then 4 weeks of PT. The day before my last appointment of PT, I went to the beach, but wore sneakers because I knew I lost a lot of calf and ankle stregnth. The next day the peroneal pain was at the top of the peroneal muscle and the pain radiated to my toes. I went in for my last PT visit and they had me do the exercises and they iced me down. They said to wait for a couple of weeks and I could come back for a few visits and I'd be all set. Not the case. I went back for a visit and the therapist said "oh you're fine" just get a strassburg sock and that will help you, it didn't. I waited a few weeks and went to see another orthopedist and he sent me for an MRI. This was now November 2013. The MRI showed NOTHING. I told him about the radiating pain down to the baby toe and the forth toe, he sent me for a test to see if I had Rheumatoid Arthritis, wrong. He sent me to another PT, and this time it took from December until March for the pain to subside. Finally. It gets better... I started to work out very slowly at first by June, I ramped up the workout, bad idea, pain came back in the lower peroneal muscle. I went to see my Primary care and he sent me for another round of PT, so I went back to see the person I saw in December, unfortunatelly she left. This time I saw I student PT and he made me worse. During this time i also had to fight for PT, Blue Cross was cutting my benefit. By October of 2014 I saw a third foot ankle specialist, he sent me for another MRI, showed nothing. He sent me for PT, but I could no longer continue because of insurance so I started looking at Active Release Therapy and Acupucture, did very little. By the time the 2015 rolled around I saw the third orthopedic and he gave me cortisone shot and I was allowed PT. By the end of March I was healed and Blue Cross cut me again. I was ok, I had started seeing a chiropractor who did graston and would have her just do a maintenance treatment once a week. I started working out slowly, never ramped it up, but a walk in the cemetery is what did me in. I have seen a podiatrist and have had to pay for PT out of pocket, but I am not getting better the PT and the Podiatrist believe it's the superficial peroneal nerve that is entrapped. I can't stand it anymore. I want relief. I'm not buying into this superficial peroneal nerve entrapment thing. I believe I have TMS. I am sorry this is so long, see there I go, saying I am sorry. I have all the type A behaviors, the goodist, the people pleaser, I probably have enough rage of being taken advantage of by my sister who is 10 years older than I. I constantly have to worry if she has enough oil to heat her house, and yes I have paid for her oil. Every time we go out I end up paying because she is low income, and on. Sometimes I am so afraid she's going to lose the family home that I end up sad. I know I have a long way to go but this ankle problem is making me nuts, I know it's repressed anger and TMS.
