In my right foot, for years, but progressively worse over time, I have a lot of cracking in the ankle and sometimes pain upon walking or putting weight on it, mostly in the heel. It's not constant, it comes and goes and probably feels fine 70% of the time.
The cracking isn't the normal once/twice joint "crack" that gives you that major sense of relief - this is a sometimes slightly painful, multiple cracking sound/sensation at the ankle joint that I get whenever I am moving my foot around and NOT putting weight on it. When I walk I rarely get the crack and if I do it's the "relieving" type of crack.
Sometimes I get pain in my heel/ankle area, mostly when putting weight on my foot. It's more common in the morning but has happened at any time of day, and happens maybe once a week or two.
I also have tarsal tunnel syndrome in this foot (also slightly in other foot but much worse in this one) and wonder if it might be related.
Is this arthritis? A broken bone that never healed right?
That might possibly be the beginnings of ankle arthritis, especially if you are middle aged or older, have injured your ankle in the past, or have been very physically active and put a lot of demands on your feet.
Get it checked out. A simple x-ray can check for arthritis most of the time.
hi bg77, I also had ankle pain after being on them for to long. It progressed to the point of limping,so when it got to bad had to use a cane that my rummy suggested. He diagnosed me with ra. Then I went to a surgical foot doctor who gave me steroid injections in the right ankle, that one is really bad. Rummy also told me to get a brace,and foot doc gave me inserts for my shoes.In the very beginning that was in 2006 the hydroxychloroquine worked for along time. Hope this will help you.Good luck on your venture to figure out what will work for you. home sweet home

Not active at all really - too inactive but trying to get better. About 80 pounds overweight at one time, now down to 65 pounds over and losing. Only 32 yrs old, and male.
Well, being overweight also puts extra demands on your feet. It is possible that losing will bring some relief from foot pain, although make sure that whatever exercises you're getting into aren't increasing your pain.
