for about 2 years i have been dealing with point pain at the tip of my medial malleolus (prominent inner ankle bone) on the left. the pain is just at the tip of the bone, occurs when turning to the right, basically just at the time there is pressure on that point. I think there is starting to be some growth, like a bone spur from the pressure that i am putting on that spot. i wear size 9 or 9.5 shoes, my boots are 26.5 mondo, Nordica Hot Rod 85's. they were fitted by a boot fitter who took a lot of measurements. there is slight pressure on the tips of my toes in the boots, and it goes away when i pressurize the shins, so i think the size is ok. but i wonder if they could be too small? I am an advanced skier, but no expert. I ski about 30 days/year.
I have tried:
-new boots (the problem started with my prevous boots, i hoped the new nordicas would fix it)
-footbed (non custom)
-foot wedge (boot fitter says that i am pronated or supinated, or something like that)
-reshaping the boot with heat by boot fitter
-shaving away boot material at pressure point by boot fitter
-foam around the painful area, but not on it, to try to direct pressure to the surrounding tissue. this is the only thing that has helped. i am using .25 inch foam, and it makes it possible to ski, but there is still pain.
does anybody have any other ideas.
i am willing to buy other boots of another size, even custom boots or a custom liner, whatever it takes, I just want to ski pain free!
thanks for any ideas!
