Ankle pain

I have been experiencing pain in my feet for more than 3 months. The pain originally started as a tenderness under the feet and became swollen then has gone into the tendons of the ankle. I have been taking water retention and vitamin B tablets as one blood test showed a bitamin B12 deficiency. I later had more blood tests taken and Xrays on my knees,feet,ankles and hands. The blood tests are negative for gout or arthritus but the Xrays show that I have osteo arthritues in my hands,knees and feet but not the ankles where I have contant pain so bad I cannot walk properly. The doctor said that it is possible that the ankles are so inflamed that the Xray does not pick it up. What else could be the cause and what is my next step. Any advice will be welcome

Hallo Di
You may have plantar fasciitis - (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0004438/)
or Tarsal tunnel syndrome (http://orthopedics.about.com/cs/footproblems/a/tarsaltunnel.htm)
Ask your doctor if you can be referred to a orthopedic surgeon for further tests?
