2. Pain when engaging inactivity is a sign of peroneal tendonitis because the person is continuing to do damage to their ankle.
When people have peroneal tendonitis, such as runners and athletes they tend to work around their pain. They will ignore the pain that they’re having and cause the peroneal tendonitis to continue to tear. When peroneal tendonitis occurs, it can happen all of a sudden or slowly. Most likely it will be a slow process if the person is continuing to run or play on the injury.
A lot of the times when a person is suffering from an injury like peroneal tendonitis, they will take an over-the-counter medication like Ibuprofen or ice their ankle down. This may help with the pain for a bit, but whenever the person starts running or playing their activity again, he or she will feel the pain. Sometimes the pain isn’t felt when the body is at rest.
