Hello,

The fibula is a bone that does not bear any weight. However, it is an attachment point for tendons and ligaments. If x-rays indicate no fracture than it sounds like some of the soft tissue is being aggravated with your activity. I would suggest utilizing ice to help minimize your swelling. From a rehabilitation standpoint you can try balance exercises such as sanding on that leg while balancing. In time the soft tissue will heal.

Hope this helps.
