I am a 33 year old female with a history of erythema nodosum. I used to get outbreaks over my bilateral shins and ankles. Last bad outbreak was probably around seven to eight years ago. I woke up this morning with pain and swelling of the lateral parts of both the feet around the cuboid bone. The strange thing was that it continued to hurt with radiating pain throughout the day. I made a podiatrist appointment. After x-rays and examination, he diagnosed me with peroneal tendonitis and gave me orthotic boots and ankle braces to wear. The doctor seemed confused by the swelling and the fact that this happened so acutely with no injury, increase activity, etc. However, it did not hurt me until I reach home. I am realizing that the pain is so familiar, like my nodules, which I used to get on my shins. I am just wondering if it could really be erythema nodosum on that part of my foot and especially being that it is occurring bilaterally at the same exact location on each foot. Is this possible? Thank you so much for your help with this matter.

Thank you doctor,
Thank you for your response. So, is it common for the bilateral location being in the same spot on each foot?
