I have had sesamoiditis a few times. Not had it for over a year now and when it did have it I rested for a couple of weeks until the pain under the sesamoids started to ease. Also bought pads which I cut into shape and placed it under the sesamoids to ease pressure whilst walking and to aid the healing. Google this method for a better description. Went to physio who also massaged the area.

I started to run about two weeks after a break from running. Cycled and swam instead. Started to ease back into running gently with a little tenderness still remaining but I didn't overdo it. The pain didn't get worse with running and with the pads and applying caution it eventually went.

Hope this helps.

I posted on here 6 months ago agonising about this. I was in denial to start with and carried on running. This wasn't a good idea. I increased spinning and swimming instead and I'm now making a running come back. Now back up to 8 miles but I'm not ignorant to this rubbish injury and have made sure I rest and keep up with the strengthening exercises.

Wish you all the best with your recovery. It will eventually come. Don't lose hope.

Had same response after visiting the docs yesterday (been suffering with Posterior Tibialis Tendinitis for past 4 months) - doc told me to take ibuprofen before a run, and that running is bad for you and no point going for a MRI scan as it wouldn't show up anything.

Thought I'd pop in with feedback.
I spent 8 weeks not running just bikes and swimming. Did a ten min jog on treadmill 3 weeks ago and felt niggle in the ankle so I stopped. Then had the similar nag for a few days. A further 3 weeks and walking a few miles seemed fine so I went out for a run. A slow 5k felt fine when running but today felt achey in general but still weakness in the ankle. So I'm no further forward.
Just thought I'd give the update.
This is a a nightmare to get rid of.

Hello and thanks both for replies. Thought I was going out of my mind yesterday I mean there are plenty people worse of than me and there I was being self pitiful. Think it just overwhelmed me. Also I find a release of my anxieties through runniing and without this it just makes me even more anxious.

I will start strengthening my glutes. I saw a pod a few years ago and he too suggested glute strengthening. I'm trying to be positive too and am listening to advice.

Thank you and wish you both we'll too.

Hi there. Thanks for your input. Since sept! How are you dealing with that? The reason I ask is that I'm quite depressed with mine and only been 6 weeks. After my two mile run earlier I experienced pain in my ankle just whilst walking and I started to cry. Pathetic I know.

Anyway thought I'd share.

Thanks for info

Just done 2 miles. Congratulated myself for stopping at that point but also felt tired anyway so didn't mind too much.

Will see how my ankle is tomorrow then rest a couple of days then go out and do the same again.

Yup. Thank you.

Can I ask if this plan worked for you? So after some time resting did you go for a short run and then build up from there?

Hi been to physio, he basically said the same to me - lower mileage and build up slowly.  He said its a balancing game as to what my ankle can handle whilst im in rehab  - told me not to stress about losing mileage I've taken so long to build up as I will get there again and won't take too long but stressed the imprortance of building up slow.

Thank u very much. I will start strengthening my glutes too. Think I'm just going to be sensible and go very easy. It is hellish but suppose it could be worse.
