i am in my late 40's , i keep getting a feeling of hot on the side of my ankle under the ankle bone, its a very small spot of warmth about the size of a quarter, it comes and goes for no reason, it happens all day, the feeling last like 10 seconds , no pain, no marks on the ankle. i find it very strange. Any idea why this would happen?

Hot Ankle
I'm 23years old and I just started experiencing the same thing..it comes and goes all day but it is not painful nor is my ankle swollen..I remember when I first felt the feeling;I was on the treadmill running..I thought maybe it was because of the type of moisture resistant socks I had on,but the warmth was/is only in my left ankle..and then it comes when i don have any socks on..hmmmm..maybe I should give my ankles time to heal and rest because I have been running every day..I'm happy I'm not the only one who experiences this;but I need to find out what it is because it is not normal.

hot ankle spot
i'm 31, and have the same thing. i do run daily. but no pain, swelling, or redness. it's only on my left ankle on the inside right under the bone. extra weird! didn't notice it till a month or 2 ago, which is also just after when i started running. wonder if that's the connection?

Me too. I am 43, it's the left ankle on the outside, about the size of a silver dollar. It is subjectively hot, but not hot to the touch. I notice it about 8 times a day, it last for a minute or two each time.

I am 51 and curled 2 days ago and started to get this hot spot on my right ankle under the bone about the size of a silver dollar...very strange. Comes and goes for about 10 seconds, no pain or reason for it. Never had it before. Wonder if it's from curling. I do have arthritis and am having hot flashes, but I don't think it's related. Makes me think I am going nuts...LOL glad to hear I am not alone!
