Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having pain in ankles when in bed can be due to various causes.

Its most common causes are:Plantar fasciitis(it is inflammation of the thick connective tissue on the sole of your foot that attaches to your heel),Prolonged standing,long journeys,venous insufficiency,varicose veins.

Other possibilities are: ankle sprain or arthritis.

You need following tests:

-X-ray scan
-A bone scan,
-Electromyography(EMG)
-Nerve conduction studies,

Following is recommended for you now:

  • Take tab. Ibuprofen 400 mg from the counter.
  • Apply heat in the form of a warm wash cloth applied to the area for 10 minutes or so 2 or 3 times a day increase blood flow to the area allowing to subside the inflammation
  • Apply analgesic gel such as diclofenac sodium twice a day
  • Have bed rest as much as possible.

All this will help you greatly.

If still after this,the ankle pain persists,then you need to make an appointment with your doctor as prescription oral medications will then be required accordingly.Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets subside with these treatment & doctor visit is less likely required.

Thank you.

Hope this helped
