    Could be a lot of things: improper cleat position, making the shoes too tight, poor fit of the bike. You might have a shop check out your fit and adjust if necessary.

    Gee, dude, I suggested having your fit checked, so you could start there. And if it's goofy, they can adjust and that might fix it. Or you could try one of those doctor types as opposed to the internet.

    So you didn't have this pain and then last year it started up right.

    Now its back.

    So what changed shoes pedals seat...

    Ah check your seat height may be it slipped down a bit.

    Use RICE - rest, ice, compression and elevation. Ice on/off every 15 mins, wrap if it seems to be swelling (not crazy tight), put your foot up, and try to take it easy.

    If you have any flat pedals, you could try those. If it seems to hurt less, that could point to cleat problems. If it still hurts, you may just have overdone it all of a sudden.

    Once a little better, strengthen the ankles with exercises like lowering your heels of stairs (hold on), resistance exercises with that stretchy tubing, etc

    An ankle brace from the drugstore, or taping with athletic tape (vids on youtube for best method) may help, but it depends what is wrong.

    Does it feel like a sprain or something else?

    Yes I did have the same pain last session & I did not change the seat height at all since last session of riding, nothing changed, what im thinking is, is there a way you need to pedal when using clip in pedales, like moves that are not good to do, or if im pedaling correct, or not???
    Thanks for the help & the options.

    Is it just 1 ankle?? If so, is it the one you unclip more, say when you put a foot down at a light? Check if the release tension is set at the minimum, shimano has all the instructions on line.

    Go to flat pedals. Used to ride clipless for years until I broke my ankle. Now the calf muscle can't take the localized pressure of clipless. Learned to enjoy going back to basics.

    Sounds like a winner to me. It`ll tell you whether or not your cleats are the problem and you can go from there after the experiment.
