Thanks for getting back to me, yeah i also thought it was a rather quick diagnosis.

When i pushed on my tendons around the ankle it hurt on both the tendon going up and the tendon going down my foot and it felt like it would if you pushed on your ankle if it was sprained, very sore and tender. The tendons that hurt more specifically:

External View(looking from the outside):
-Common tendinous sheath of fibularis (peroneus) longus and brevis.
-Fibularis (peroneus) longus tendon.
-Fibularis (peroneus) brevis tendon.
-Tendinous sheath of extensor digitorum longus and peroneus tertius.
-Fibularis (peroneus) tertius tendon.

Internal View(Looking from the inside):
-Posterior tibial tendon.

(I only know this as i looked at a diagram on google images).
I literally couldn’t move my foot in a circular motion as my foot/ankles flexibility was severely restricted and yes it did hurt when i slept in certain positions.
My Uncle has been diagnosed with gout but none of my parents have it.

The pain and swelling have almost gone but it is still slightly there so going to get my bloods done again when it fully subsides. If i get my bloods taken when i have fully recovered from the pain and swelling would that not mean that the uric acid levels will have decreased anyway?

Thanks for your help, much appreciated!
