Left ankle and foot feels stiff and weird
I don't know what is wrong with me. All I know is about a week and a half ago, I felt a tight band, a stiffness around my left ankle, the front part. THEN suddenly I feel like my foot is not flexing properly, like it's stiff. I have zero pain. Just this weird stiffness and feeling like my foot and ankle are in a rubber band almost. If I look at my ankle, the top part where the ankle and foot meet, the inner side of my ankle and foot, there is an area right near the joint that feels bumpy, slightly swollen, if you press on it. It's right where the ankle and foot meet, on the joint, on the front part and my right side so the inner ankle side but top part where the ankle and foot meet, and where the shin would be further up.
I do not know what this swelling/lumpy thing is, I don't know why I don't have pain and I am perplexed over why my walking feels weird. I actually had a neurologist appointment for neck and back issues and he said my gait was fine. He said he watched me walk in. He kind of annoyed me since he was more interested in getting me to a pain clinic for my neck and back over really listening to me. Nevertheless, he seemed to think there was nothing neurological at all going on.
Does anyone have a guess at what could be wrong? Do you have to have pain to have arthritis? Is this a tendon or ligament on the front part, where the swollen area is? Thanks.
