Re: peroneus longus tendon
Hi! Post on the foot problems board and you will probably get more responses. I would see a bord certified foot/ankle orthopedic surgeon. Sounds like your peroneal tendons might be subluxing (popping in and out of place). I don't know that for sure but its what it sounds like. This happened to me and was the result of several ankle injuries and I've had 2 surgeries. Before the 2nd surgery my doctor found my tendons were popping over the malleolus. He fixed that in surgery along with other stuff. The bad thing about letting that go is that it can cause the tendon to degenerate and/or tear. Again, don't know that this is what you have, just sharing my experience because your symptoms sound like mine. Please get it checked! Let us know what the doctor says! Good luck!
