What causes ankle and leg pain while treating plantar fasciiitis?

I had plantar fasciitis and it finally got better then my hip started hurting now the hip is okay but my left ankle hurts at night as if it has been sprained. The pain also goes up my leg. It is so painful and uncomfortable it is causing problems sleeping.

Hello,

You should see a physiotherapist and start some exercises. Also, wear the special soles recommended for plantar fasciitis. You should start gabapentin and Neurbion tablets at night for better help.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Harshita, Ophthalmologist

I have been sedentary for quite a while and now feel well enough to start walking again. However, I am having severe leg pain when I walk. I am a 55 year old female with diabetes. Do I just need to tough it out till I get used to walking again or is this something serioius that I need to discuss with my doctor?

I am concerned about the front on my right leg, as it is causes pain when I apply any pressure (however slight). It is only on the bottom half of the leg. There is no visible redness or swelling (although my legs and ankles tend to swell in the heat). I have noticed a couple of mosquito bites at my ankle but the pain is further up (more around shin). I have had superficial DVT about 22 years ago and am concerned that this could be a venous problem as it has a path of sensitivity which you can follow with your finger up the leg below the knee. I have had it for about 4 days now.
