i hurt my ankle, the ER said sprained but weren't sure if their was any other damage as the sweelign was still too much by the time they discarged me, back on December 21st 2009. My ankle has never fully felt or been back to normal but now my ankle and the ligaments and tendons lock up on me , when i rotate my ankle it sounds like a bunch of old rusty gears grinding together and it makes this awful clicking sound occassionally when i sit with my legs crossed and tap my ankle in the air. It cracks painfully sometimes but starting a few days ago Ibroupen 800 didn't even put a dent in the discomfort and pain, and the locking up got to the point that i could not bear weight on my right leg at all and my heel was stuck in the position as if i had a high heel show on, i iced it and the muscle unlocked but it has done this several times since the other night.. I actually think that it was broken even a hairline fracture and it didn't heal correctly , but that is just my guess at what is wrong with it. The reason i think it may hav ebeen broken is because i experienced a "sprain " like this before and several months back before i hurt it i was getting an xray for what turned out to be a falling arch and i have corrected that porblem with orthotics, but in the xray my doctor informed me that i had broken my right ankle before and as far as i knew i hadn't it had only been sprained.
Any input or ideas would greatly help me out as i am waiting to see my podiatrist becasue my ride had jury duty until who knows when.
