Bumps under skin on ankle bone

I have had these little bumps under my skin right on my ankle bone for over a month now, there s at least 5-8 on my left ankle, and recently it just started to appear on my right ankle. a couple mornings ago i woke up and my ankles were sore to walk on but that s the only time it has hurt. i don t see any sign of it being dry and i do use lotion often. i am on medication but i ve been on it for over a year now so it wouldn t be from that. please let me know.

Hello, two nights ago I realized that I have a bump about 2cm in length and 1cm in width just under my ankle bone. Since then it has been very itchy. I mean, VERY itchy. It is the color of my skin, but it is a little darker, so you can see that there is clearly a bump. I need help a.s.a.p. as I worry it is a Spider Bite or something...

Hi. I am a gymnast and was climbing rope at practice. I was a 1-3 feet above ground when I decided that I would drop because I do it all of the time! But this time, I landed on the end of the rope (on the knot) which just so happened to be lying on the ground. I landed on my ankle and it gave out and twisted completely sideways. I didn t think it would be too bad because I have very flexible ankles and they sometimes do that. It turned out to be a really bad sprain and was super swollen and bruised. This happened 3-5 weeks ago and all of the bruising and the majority of the swelling is gone (it looks like a normal ankle until you compare it to my other one-- I have Very small ankles) I have gained a lot of the motion back, but still can t point my toe very well. I also have a hard bump under my ankle bone in the slightly swollen area. Do you have any idea what that bump is, or what is wrong? I have pictures of you need them you can ask for my email and email me-- Thanks.

Several days ago I turned my right ankle when I stepped in a hole. It rolled to the outside. Some pain but not really bad. No swelling, no discoloration. I have had a sprained ankle and it is not like that. It does not hurt at all when I am sitting or laying down. When I walk more than 15-20 steps it hurts. The first few steps don't hurt but the last 2 or three are really bad. What is this?

I badly sprained my ankle on Sunday. It had an X-ray and he said it wasn't broken. I have grade 2 ligament damage. I have been trying to exercise it as advised. Everytime I walk on it, I feel sick. My gate is improving slowly but is still very limited. I have bruising and swelling all over my foot and ankle but also halfway up my shin. Is feeling so sick normal?

I twisted my left ankle 16 days ago. On lateral radiographs I have an 8mm long chip fracture of the proximal/dorsal aspect of my navicular bone (fracture line enters the talonavicular joint) that is rotated 90 degrees proximally. The orthopedic surgeon wants to remove it to "prevent arthritis" but all the references I can find online recommend conservative management. I have been staying off of the foot for the past two weeks but the NP put me into a walking air cast boot yesterday and recommended partial weightbearing. My foot is not painful when nonweightbearing but I do feel tingling on the bottom of my foot when I bear a small amount of weight. I also have a lateral collateral ligament sprain. My foot swelling is mild to moderate.

1) Is removal of navicular chip fracture fragments common/indicated?
2) Is walking or immobilization better?
