    Dr Corenman,
    Something I have had for a while, but only occassionally, is a pain in my inner left ankle and lower calf which also gives way as I put any weight on that foot. It feels as if I have sprained that ankle very badly and it won’t support my weight.

    I have been suffering with this pain and symptom for the last three days, and although it isn’t there all the time, it keeps happening more frequently now. Between this happening, all can feel normal for a while, and then it is back again with a vengence. The way it can feel normal in between episodes makes me think it is nothing to do with my ankle or leg, but perhaps coming from my back.

    I would love to hear your opinion on this.

    The differential list is very long for ankle and calf pain onset with standing. Since you don’t describe back pain or pain that radiates from the buttocks, more likely than not this is a lower leg disorder and not a back disorder.
