Hi I broke my ankle 3 years ago and everytime I try some sort f exercise other than swimming it give me problems. Is there a chance there could be some unhealed damage on the ankle still? I can walk on it still but always have some twitching pain just below the actual ankle bone which is where it broke, it comes and goes but recentley since taking up jogging it has got worse. I was just getting into my stride with it all now its o painful to go. Any advice would be much appriciated. Joe

it seems that at the time of having accident you might not gone for the treatment.
At that time you might got fracture of ankle bone and it remained un treated might have caused mal united fracture giving you this problem.
Now consult orthopedic surgeon and take his opinion and line of treatment.
Ok and bye.
