Causes And Solutions For Treating Ankle Pain?
Good night,. I want to ask about the new pain that I have felt in my left ankle this morning (inside). Guess what causes it? And how to solve it? R nThank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
There are many possible causes of pain in the inner side of the ankle, and each can have different treatments. It needs to be clarified, are there any other complaints that you feel besides the pain, such as swelling, lumps, sores, tingling, etc.? Have you had any previous injuries around the sore ankle?
Here are some possibilities that can cause pain on the inside of the ankle:
Injuries, such as from being dropped, hit, or under excessive pressure
Infections, such as due to folliculitis, herpes zoster
Irritant contact dermatitis
Arthritis, such as due to rheumatoid arthritis, gouty arthritis
Nerve disorders, such as diabetes, tarsal tunnel syndrome
Disorders of the muscles, bones, blood vessels, and other components around the ankles, and so on
As a first step, try to relieve the pain in the following ways:
Do not massage or massage the sore ankle too much
Compress the sore ankle with warm water or ice cubes (whichever is most comfortable for you)
If there is a wound on the skin, clean it with an antiseptic solution or NaCl solution using clean gauze
If there is no wound, apply a sore ankle with a pain relieving cream (for example, one containing paracetamol)
Wear comfortable footwear, not too narrow, avoid high heels
Rest your feet from excessive activity and risk causing injury to the feet
If with the steps above the complaint still does not improve in 1 to 3 days, you should check with your doctor right away .. The doctor will carry out a thorough examination, including possibly x-rays, laboratory examinations, CT scans, and so on to find out the origin pain, following the best treatment.
Hope it helps ..
