Thanks for the newsfeed on this topic. I’m experiencing the same stabbing pain as described, only after foot and ankle reconstruction with a tendon transfer from my left calf to the inside of my left ankle. I ruptured a tendon 6 cm into the calf muscle, so another tendon is now attached in tandem. I am in so much excruciating pain all of the time and refuse to take narcotic pain medication or muscle relaxers, because I don’t want to become a prescription drug addict. I’ve tried four rounds of P/T, OTC topicals and RX topicals, Epsom Salts, ice, heat, stretching, the exercise ball, swimming, ballet exercises in the pool, hydrotherapy , trigger point, and of course Advil and Tylenol P.M.
