I have been having reoccuring pain in my left ankle for the last few weeks. I'm not aware of spraining it at any time. It gets sore with sometimes a burning pain anterior/inferior to the ankle bone on the medial aspect of the foot. I am 60 yo, have some chronic problems with arthritis but this is unusual and new. Have had and still have stiffness and soreness sometimes after sitting for a while but in both ankles. Tried a brace witch helps the tenderness but increases the burning. It helps to message it with aspercreme or simular ointments and to rest it.
Don't know whether to see an orthopedic doctor or a podiatrist.
What do you suggest.
