Patient :I have just started running, but I have found that within one minute, my ankles start to seize up, and eventually I have to stop. The pain sort of radiates up my shins, and feels like my ankles have gone numb because of the pain. The front of my foot hurts when I properly stretch it out afterwards. I've been told to just run through it, but it seems too painful to do so.
