Tendonitis can get pretty painful and sometimes unbearable and the way you have described your symptoms, I guess it is more of tear. Sometimes this pain feels like emanating from the bones but actually it is from the spot where the muscles and bone are connected.See for a couple of days and use an anskle band.If pain persists, see an orthopedician or a GP.

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?
