for the past year or so i have had problems with my ankles. i always disregaurded them when they ached constantly after being on my feet for long periods of time, its when i wanted to try out for track i discoverd a real problem. When i run on surfaces where i can get full movement of my ankle (mainly everything but beach sand) it will crack and go temprarily numb. Sometimes it is quite funny, since they go numb i no longer have control over them and i usually fall. if i quit running right then and there it will feel like im walking on jelly for about 10 minutes, if i keep running they will stay semi-nunmb for up too three hours. my doctor told me it could be carpal tunnel of the ankle. i know its called something diffrent, and i cant find any information on it on the web. I dont want to go to a specialits till i know its abselutely(sp?) neccessary. please help me!
