Ankle Pain

I have visible swelling to the outside of my achilles tendon on my ankle and it hurts. It hurts more as the day goes on.

It started to bother me about a week ago and I decided to take a week off. After the open I think my entire body needed the rest. Anyway, my foot felt fine after a few days. I did 'Cindy' on Monday and yesterday my ankle was swollen and hurting. Is this some kind of achilles injury or more of an ankle injury? I can't imagine that doing squats would have irritated it and I haven't really done anything else. I took yesterday off and plan on doing the same today until I can figure out what this is coming from.

Re: Ankle Pain

Need more information.

What movements hurt? Previous injuries? Training history? Current routine?

Re: Ankle Pain

It sort of always hurts. More when i walk than anything else. No previous injury. My training is usually squat heavy on monday and do wods on tuesday thursday friday. I did the open and then took a week off. It was irritated near the end of the open. No pain at all on my week off. Did Cindy on monday and had pain and swelling on tuesday. Kind of a dull pain just sitting here.

Typing on my phone so i hope this makes sense.

is it back of the ankle and touching it hurts or is it outside of the ankle . If it is behind the ankle or posterior then it is most likely achilles tendonitis, if it is to the outside of the ankle then it is most likely peroneal tendon tenndonitis which usually gets better after modification

Outside of back of ankle would be how I would describe it.

What do you mean by 'modification'?

Re: Ankle Pain

Modification as in changes to your exercise regimen so you don't aggravate it coupled with rehab to help it heal up
