I get very embaressed if I get hurt, and don't tell anyone. So, I sprained my ankle doing high-grade falls at aikido (martial art) when I landed with my ankle underneath my other leg. I was training with this guy who is really good at aikido, so I didn't say anything though it hurt so badly I almost passed out when we had to sit in seiza (which is kneeling and sitting on your legs). Next day it had swelled a lot and I could barely hobble, but the day after it wasn't bad and I continued training as usual though the swelling hadn't gone down and it still hurt, and I would get this wierd crackling noise when I rotated it. That was five months ago. It was at least a month until I could sit in seiza properly, before that I was sticking my leg out to the side. It only stopped being a little swollen and squishy about a month ago and it still twinges sometimes. Is it normal for a sprained ankle to take this long to heal? I never saw a doctor, so it was a self-diagnosis, but surely I would have realised if I broke something? It hurt a lot at the time, but I was able to walk nearly normally on it 10 minutes after I did it and able to conceal it from the other people training, it was sitting in seiza that caused the most pain.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
