Nope. As for the position, mine is between the fibula and calcaneus. I had some stuff to do yesterday, and didn't get out riding. The pain has reduced significantly. I think it is likely a pressure point due to the j-bars. Tonight I am going to pay more attention to what I am doing in that area while riding.

An ankle injury can take a long while to recover; and if not taken care of at the beginning can cause problems for a lifetime. Besides muscles and tendons there is cartilage which as you get older can be an issue.

However, if the pain is from extended, over use, or ramping up your game you might consult a PT to figure out some strengthening, stretching and range of motion exercises to beef up/deal with the issue.

So assuming that's correct, the calcaneus is where i'm feelin this unhappiness.

I can see it now - kid falls over on the mountain, grabs his boot, and starts screeming "owww, my calcaneus! my calcaneus!!!"
The protrusion that makes your heel is the calc, the protrusions on the medial and lateral aspects of the ankle are the malleoli or the most distal portions of the tibia and fibula that wrap around the talus forming the ankles joint.... There are tons of ligaments holding it together along with multiple articular surfaces in there.

Is it the heel or the "bumps on the side"?

Wrath is right on in his statement too.....

I'm not sure if it makes any difference, but did you just switch to Burton boots this year? A couple years ago when buying my first pair of boots I tried on a bunch. I tried 5-6 different models of Burton's and found that the heel/ankle area put some weird pressure on my ankles. Every pair felt like the padding meant to hold my heel in place was to high for my ankles, every time I would step down it felt like my ankle and heel were separating a little putting strain on the ligaments and tendons. Maybe they just needed to be packed out a little so my heel would sit all the way down without putting pressure on my ankle I just figured if they were uncomfortable walking around the store for a few minutes no sense in taking a chance that they would be that way all the time. I did try on a couple pairs of DC and the ankle part felt fine but the toe box felt very skinny and I hate having my toes smashed. I finally found a pair of Van's that fit my weird shaped foot/ankle.

It's what this person has termed in their picture as "weird bone sticking out thingy"

Sounds like an aggravated pressure point from your shape of foot (photo). Find boots that fit, etc,etc, then get them heat molded, and maybe visit a great boot fitter. You have a protrusion that not everyone has, boot makers cannot account for that.

yup - i agree that it sounds like a pressure point.
the rulers are thus far the best fitting boots i've found, tried on a boatload at numerous shops. Rulers were the only ones i can go hours w/o pain, but eventually it hits.

Heat molded, etc - yes. At this point i'm thinking more along the lines of somehow extra heat molding and forcing the area in question out a bit extra... or what I noted in my 1st post in this thread...
