Dr. says tendon the problem, and may have a floater!!!

I am 45 years old and I can’t remember a year without going by after the age of 7 that I didn’t twist my ankles!Yes both of my ankles have been twisted like over 50 times! I have never broken my ankle, but just serverity sprain them both at one time!Well I finally went to my Podiatrist, with pain on the inner part of my right foot, He informed me after a X-ray that I had a deformity to a bone in my foot with a possible floater.. He also said he believe the pain I was having is do to inflammation of a tendon. What I want to know is just what is a floater?

    While “floater” is not a strictly medical term, I think your doctor was trying to make a point. You might have a piece of bone and/or cartilage that has broken off and is loose in the joint. You might ask the doctor to further explain this so you can fully understand.
    Hope this helps.
