    Have had almost a year of off/on peroneal tendonitis with some burning pain, some more like typical musculoskeletal pain. Not much swelling although swollen compared to "good" foot. Some ankle instability. Over the last few days the burning pain has become more frequent and long lasting, usually popping up suddenly during activity.

    I have an MRI coming up, but I would like to know if anyone has any idea what this might be, and if it is typical of peroneal tendonitis proper or might indicate something worse.

    Thanks for any thoughts.

    "Burning" typically could mean nerve irritation

    Another kind of burning pain occurs when a muscle is used constantly. An over-supinator foot type will constantly activate their peroneal muscles to prevent the foot from falling into inversion (bottom of foot turns toward other foot). For those with an over-supination foot type, I've seen the pain go away instantly when standing on a valgus wedge (high laterally tapering to zero height medially).
