I am on day 3 week 5 after taking a break from running because of ankle pain. During day 2, I noticed a recurrance of the burning pain which runs from the inside knuckle of my ankle down the side of my foot to the front area of my heel. I have taken 2 days rest but am worried that, if I continue, I will get the pain back again. Last time it was so sever that it woke me up at night. Each time I moved my foot, it felt like an electric shock. I suspect it is a tendon problem although the walk-in clinic would not confirm this and just told me to stop running. I am 69 and they said (and I quote) "at your age you are more likely to get injured if you push yourself". I don't want to give up but don't want to injur myself again either. Does anyone have any advice?
