    Bone Spurs on my ankle!

    I thought I had gout and after awhile went to a doctor. Got three xrays and was told I had bone spurs on my ankle and put into a removable walking boot and given crutches, also steroids. The pain and swelling has finally left. Although, sometimes there is a bit of achey feeling in my toes and a slight redness. I am finally able to wear two shoes again, after four months but still use my crutches. Still can not put much weight on the foot with the ankle spurs. Help!!! What else can I do? Do spurs ever go away without surgery?

    Hi Paradise1

    I have heard of laproscopy surgery to remove bone spurs, but there is a non invasive solution that worked for my husband and for my step dad after years of sufferring. Their diagnosed spurs dissolved in a matter of weeks, and they never had the pain again. You may not ever hear about it from the medical community, but yhr treatment is harmless to try.

    Most everyone is deficient in Magnesium. Calcium must have sufficient magnesium to absorb into bones. Without sufficient magnesium calcium is deposited into the soft tissue, creating, guess what...bone deposits or "spurs" that irriitate the soft tissue. The solution is not fast like a drug action. It restores a mineral balance so results will depend on your own body.

    Simply take enough magnesium citrate daily until your bowel stool is regular and not too soft. (if too soft you can back off the magnesium a little...if too hard take more magnesium daily). If you ever noticed that eating cheese may cause constipation or harder stools, then just take magnesium next time you eat cheese and you will see the quicker effect of the balance between magnesium and the condensed calcium in cheese.

    Research for yourself how calcium and magesium work together, so you can try it consistently with confidence. Let us know how fast the bone spurs dissolve and you are pain free.

    All the best.

    Re: Bone Spurs on my ankle!

    Paradise1, Were your bone spurs called calcaneal spurs ?
    i also just had 3 xrays of each ankle and xrays results are

    2 mm plantar calcaneal spurs bilaterally
    posterior calcaneal enthesophytes bilaterally

    The pain and swelling is terrible.

    Friend you mention magnesium citrate can relieve this ?
    Friend is this the yhr treatment you are speaking of ?

    Paradise1 did you see a specialists for foot and ankle to get the Boot and injections (steroid) ?
