Swelling under outer right ankle

I have swelling and pain under my outer right ankle for last 6 months. Got and MRI done last month which suggests that their is no peroneal tendon or any other soft tissue problem. I still have pain while walking and dull pain with some localized swelling and redness under ankle. Dr gave me anti-inflamatory but I have swelling.Mostly I have dull pain but some times there is a shooting pain for split second (that happend only couple of times). When I work /stand/walk for extended time the whole area becomes /feels sore. Orthopedic surgeon said it's realted to soft tissue and keep on taking anti-inflamatory but so far no success.What this can be if it's not tendon?

I don't know, but if you find out, please let me know!

Have you tried exercises? Did you have an injury?

And don't take too many of those anti-inflammatories.

Re: Swelling under outer right ankle

Did the doc say there was evidence of arthritis?
