I've been running 3.5 miles 3 times a week for the last month or so but about half way round on Tuesday's night run the inside of my ankle starting hurting. I managed to get home but the next day my ankle was puffy. I haven't run since - its not so puffy now but a wee bit sore still I'm just wondering if it could be a stress fracture? Not too sure what to do whether to head off to the Docs or the hospital?
No idea if it is a stress fracture but would definitely get it checked. I would probably go for the Drs route. However am fortunate in that can usually get an appointment same or next day. I always think of A and E as for things that have just happenned or require immediate attention.
Is likely to be ligament on inside of ankle, but could be a stress fracture. It should be checked out and treated either way.
