Pain and stiffness in the ankles

Postby Angel777 » Mon Mar 30, 2009 8:10 pm

I have recently developed this , my ankles have started to be quite painful and ache too, nothing seems to be a serious problem just all to do with having Fibro and O arthritis . One especially seems to get really painful and stiff after any walking . My theory is its the muscles again not able to support the bones.
Anyone else get this? also have had an increase is general fibro pains .
Diagnosed with FM 2007 /Also have Osteoarthritis which I have had for many years .
Looking to connect with fellow FM people near me as well as making friends and having support from this forum .

I get lots of pain in my ankles as well.
I feel it more when i have been walking for a bit, i start to limp as they are so painful.
I have started to use my walking stick now if i know i am going to be walking.
Last time i saw my rheumy he checked them to see if i had arthritis...lucky i did not.
hope your pain eases soon.

hi, yep my feet give me lots of problems - especially my right foot - by the ankle and the top of the foot and down the outer edge, really hurts to walk and hobble on it.....had it 5 days solid last week and then it went.........for a day............and came back toes also hurt and my toes on left foot been hurting today...cant even use walking stick cos got really weak crampy hands !!!
my main fibro problems seem to be feet and hand get neck/back/shoulder pains and headaches, pins and needles and feel like my arms have been punched and some days my hands and feet feel as big as an elephants but they are just normal size...!!!!..
