I have this condition. Apparently its pretty rare. i passed a medical for the australian defence force but i think that was due to having a dodgy doctor.

i have never really had any problems with it although previously i did have stiffening in my calfs and sore ankle but after being reffered to a physio i stretch everynite and it has got better. i can run and do all physical tasks like running without incident.

i know its hard and only the medical examiner can give me a definiative answer but has anyone heard of this conditon before and do you know anyone who has got in with this

any advice/help is greatly appreciated

if anyone wants to read futher

thanks in advance for any help

If your have little problem during running maybe you should consider an insole to help correct any slight discomfort you are getting, i use heat mould able insoles in my shoes as you can make them a more custom fit for your feet.

Here is a link to the them they have links to loads of online shops that will mail em to you almost anywhere in the world.

Hope this helps
