Re: Widespread ankle pain

These are just my thoughts, since I haven't examined you I can not give an exact impression.

One possibility is a tear in the calf muscle (gastrocnemius or soleus) Other thoughts include.
Compartment syndrome, Phlebitis, stress fracture of tibia or fibula.

Have you been immobilized or been off weight bearing with crutches for any length of time?

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
