My ankle has been quite a long road for me. When I was 15, August 21, 2005, I slid into a base during a softball game, as soon as I did it, I knew I did something wrong. I was screaming because of the intense pain that ran through my body. I had a cast for a couple months which is where I took the whole summer to go through physical therapy. No hope. So that December I went through with surgery, reconstructive. I had an evoultion fracture and my tendant was at the bottom of my foot. That was in the inside of my right ankle, on the left side of my ankle I ripped all the tendants where they place anchors on the outside. I was out of school for 7 weeks. 6 months of physical therapy, nothing was getting better. So we went to a pain doctor. Where he said I had RSD also know as CRPS. Long story short I am still in pain 2 1/2 years later. I am now taking Nuerontin which is helping to neuropathy pain. And now I have just developed a bruise on the outside of my ankle like three days ago it is right over my screws. I am almost 18 now with depression and anxiety because excercise was my outlet but I try to be optimistic that this road will get better. Pray for me please!
