Brief Answer:
Immobilization

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

The pain you are experiencing may not be due to serious injury but need immobilization for few days. This can be achieved by applying a Crepe bandage. Also, do apply diclofenac painkiller gel when pain is intense.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.

no this is not the case dr ...
I get these when driving sometimes and even just normal daily movement where I start to feel a sorta spasm in the area above my ankle ... after applying intense pressure with my fingers and while I can also feel my tendon or ligament having spasms I am able to relieve this after 10 minutes or so !!
my inclination is to believe the simple like a vitamin deficiency
and now what do you think ??
