Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by an entrapment of the tibial nerve that runs through a groove on the inside of the ankle.  A common symptom of Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome is a pain along the inner leg behind the ankle bone. It causes pain with burning and tingling on the sole of the foot. Usually pain increases as the day goes on and resolves with rest.
