Good news everyone!

hoorayI do not have gout or a bacterial infection in my ankle!!!!!!!!

What do I have you ask? Tendonopathy which basically means I have pain, tenderness etc in my ankle for no apparent reason. The ultrasound did show calcium building up on the tendon which could maybe be the cause of the pain but my Dr isn’t sure.

Today my pain is basically gone. There is a bit of stiffness where the pain and swelling was and she advised I could have a cortisone shot if the pain was still at the level it was when I first saw her. I am not a fan of unnecessary needles into my body and opted out of the shot. It’s possible that the pain and swelling could reoccur and maybe then I will contemplate the needle.
