Severe Ankle Pain

I am experiencing severe ankle pain. I have not sprained my ankles in years. My right ankle is worse than the left. There is also noticeable swelling in my right. I can walk and activity seems to make the pain more tolerable. I have noticed the severity of pain increase after long car trips and after flying.

I have Morton's Neromas in both my feet. My left has been developing curled 2nd and 3rd toes. I wear custom orthotics.

Planning on contacting my foot doctor to see what can be done. Is there hope to get rid of this foot and ankle pain with treatment or is surgery down the road? What treatments can I expect?

Whether there is hope or not, and what treatments can be done is all dependent on what the podiatrist finds. Without a diagnosis your questions can't be answered. He's the expert, let him figure it out.
