I don't get the ankle pain but the bottom of my feet are sore. Sometimes I wish I could walk on clouds. LOL Although my slippers do help since they are squishy.

The bottom of my feet feel like I have tiny glass splinters in them. It gets worse when I'm cold.

I get real bad ankle pain, it feels as though my ankles pop out of their socketSad I have achilles tendinitis in both.

I haven't done it yet, the new pain doctor I just saw gave me a suggestion. Use a pillow when you are sleeping for your feet. Don't place your feet on top of the pillow. Place your feet pushing towards the pillow so that they stay in place - if that's possibleLaughing

But seriously, I'm going to find a pillow & do that to see if it works. My son has this Jumbo Tootsie Roll pillow. Maybe I can try that out, he'll have a fit though if he knows I've been putting my feet on itGrin

I have ankle and foot pain. It is like my feet won't work when I first put them on the floor in the morning. I actually hear the right foot pop. I had it xrayed last month and nothing is broken. My feet hurt all of the time. You're right slippers help and I keep my feet warm all of the time. I am going to an orthopod on Wednesday and I will let you know what he has to say about foot and ankle pain and fibro.

We will spread the info

Definitely! I read in my favorite FM book that people with FM tend to have weak ankles. For some unknown reason. ??? I never could ice skate when I was a kid and in my 20's, when I tried walk-jogging (mostly walking), my feet would end up flopping and slapping the pavement by the end of a mile. No control left in my ankles, even after doing it for a year. That just didn't seem right.

The bottoms of my feet hurt the most when I stand on them for long periods of time. The worst time was when I had to wear dress shoes for a job and was on my feet constantly. The following morning, when I'd touch the floor with my feet, they hurt horribly. It would take 5 minutes of gradually adding pressure until I could stand up and then would hobble for another ten minutes. And it was just a part-time job! Dizzy

Maybe this explains how I broke my left ankle sometime b/t October and Feb and Do not know how. I woke up one morning in Oct and my ankle was swollen and it was hard to walk on. They called it tendonitis and I walked on it until the end of Jan. when I had xrays that actually said it was broken. Now it hurts all of the time. It hurts all of the way up my thigh. As soon as I put any weight on it it starts to thrump and burn on the inside. My left foot just aches. I feel like I am just a mess.

I also read that people with fibro have weak ankles. It is so weird because I always had weak ankles when I played sports in high school. When I went to college, the athletic trainer looked at my ankles and thought it was weird how weak they were. My feet hurt at night because I am on my feet most of the day for my job.

I have weak ankles and lower legs. Each leg has been broke once apiece. I could be standing still and my ankle will snap sideways. The pain in the bottom of my feet is sometimes unbearable.

Here is to a relatively pain free day...hugs, Alicia
