Ankle pain when i woke up from bed!

Postby Robert » Sat Jun 04, 2016 6:50 am

Today i woke up with an ankle pain and i am not sure of what has caused it. The pain was there for sometime and after few minutes its gone. I have noticed it for the past few days and it especially happens while i got out from bed. What could be the reasons for it and how to get relief from the pain?

I have been experiencing the same problem but I submitted my post in the wrong section. Have you gained weight? I think this may be the cause of my pain and as you stated, I mostly feel it in the mornings when I get off my bed. Also, have you ever considered going to a specialist? If mine persists much longer I will.

Could be a loss of blood in that area while you were sleeping. I had those moments too where I would wake up and try to walk, but because I slept in a weird position, my entire leg would be lifeless. I would try to stand but end up hitting the wall and barely catching myself in the process.

I was a runner when I was young and these weird spasms would appear during the day, or when I get out of bed. Not sure what it is, as I always took it as part of the package deal if you work out or at least walk.

You can also try have a doctor to take a look at your foot and prescribe a better shaped shoe to fit your walking and running style. That always helps.

It might have something to do with your posture or the way you're sleeping. If you're sleeping on it funny or your posture is bad in general, the problem can easily be exacerbated. Maybe try sleeping with it on a pillow or something?

You probably slept on it wrong. I feel like the most likely scenario here, is a small constriction of blood/flow, that often causes pain/loss of feeling in a limb. If you have too much pressure on your arm or leg for a while, you can feel the sensation in your hand or feet for the most part. I think this is the most likely scenario if the pain does go away after a few minutes.

You shouldn't ignore any pain since it could be a precursor to something worse. But in most cases, this is a consequence of sleeping in one position resulting in pressure on one joint. You should also check whether you have undergone an increase in weight which could be a predisposing factor. If its a prolonged situation, it could be a symptom of fibromyalgia.

While its good advice not to ignore any pain, I'd wouldn't say that I'd be going to the doctors with the ankle pain just yet. A lots going to depend on how long the ankle pain as been there for, and sometimes pains like these can just go on their own accord.

If it continues for more than a couple of weeks I'd go to the doctors or the pharmacist for advice, but not before then as it might just be one of the signs of getting old. Don't take offence, it happens to us all!

Maybe you just slept over it through the night. It happens when your body isn't in a neutral position. It gets stressed all night, and in the morning, you will be stiff and in pain. Just take it to neutral position for the rest of the day, maybe don't stress on it too much, put some hot compress and cold (alternating) and eventually it will be fixed. I don't think you need to go to the doctor, it's just taking it easy, and it will be fine. Hopefully you have learned your lesson, and you wouldn't sleep awkwardly to avoid having these again.

You may have mildly sprained your ankle in your day to day activities. Is the pain severe or just mild? If severe you should consult a physician but if mild, it might go away in a few days. Try massaging the foot to see if you can detect the specific area that pains and the severity of the pain.

You must consult from the doctor or foot specialist to get the treatment for ankle pain. Take care.
