Who has 'Tightening' around Ankle?

A couple of days ago I read a post. It wasn't the topic of conversation but someone mentioned a 'Tightening' around their ankle. I stupidly didn't comment because it was 'off topic' and now can't find the post. I have been plagued with this for a year. I describe it as a vice like pain. In all honesty it's like having your leg trapped in a bear trap! While I was in my year of 'MS limbo' it happened in my left ankle end of last year and was basically dismissed. Was given Gabapentin in March for 'pain and stiffness' It happened in right leg in July this year but since diagnosis in August, this time it has been been described as a Sensory relapse. I had a relapse that started 2 weeks ago that left me with a walking stick. 3 doses of IV steroids, the addition of baclofen for spasticity and increase in night time dose of Gabapentin for the horrendous hug and the beastly right bear trap has reared it's ugly head again. It's constant. Luckily, sometimes it feels like a 'hug'. I'm going to contact my Nurse to 'check in' at her request and I'll let her know what's occurring. (Even though she's on Holiday abroad) Are you the person who mentioned the ankle 'tightening'? Do you know who did? Or do you get this too? Sounds like the end of Jersey Kyle ? Curious as never seen it mentioned before. Thanks in advance for taking the time to read my essay.
