I have had varying intensity of ankle pain since I

I have had varying intensity of ankle pain since I was a child (I am now 20) when doing physical activity. My lower leg would be in pain from walking for a certain amount of time, walking on an incline, running, swimming, etc. The pain used to be only in my ankle but gradually made its way to my calves starting 4 or 5 years ago. The pain will normally feel like an ache and burn along the outer sides of my calves. It would increase in intensity with every step I make. to the point where I start limping or discontinue the physical activity. I went to a doctor recently for this and he informed me after a physical evaluation that my ankles were dislocated for about 8/9+ years now. I was wondering how likely this is, and why would it be causing pain in my calves? Also if this is true, would it have caused a discrepancy in my bone growth? Would I have suffered any permanent damage? I would like to know the severity of having my ankles dislocated for this long. Thank you.

I have been having a lot of pain in both ankles for quite some time. I was an avid bodybuilder in the mid 80s & early 90s. I did do steroids back then when competing and stopped in the early 90s. I have since got back on a little testosterone to keep my test level up because I still train very intense and am trying to maintain some size and keep my training intense. The pain still has not subsided and feels like its getting worse at times. Any advice would greatly appreciated. Thx Tony

i had a fall in june and severly hurt my ankle but i did not go to the hospital as i thought it was a bad sprain. I have put up with the pain since then and finally had an xray. I received a letter from my doctor to day saying i had to phone for a consultation about my ankle?
