anterior talofibular ligament
I sprained my ankle two weeks ago today. I was out running and the pain just came on very severely. The strange thing is that I dont even recall going over on it or twisting is in any way. The swelling can come up terrible depending on how much im hobbling about on it. I cant walk normally with out a limp and even to touch it around the outer edge or just above the ankle bone is very tender. Ive had an x-ray which i was told was all ok bone wise, and I am RICE ing it quite often. Does anyone have any idea what I could have done? And what other form of exercise could I do to keep up my fitness and my weight stable? From running 25 miles per week to nothing is starting to make me feel abit depressed. i Did ask a Dr about an MRI scan but he just said that we need to give it more time yet before going down that route.
I am in exactly the same situation. I badly sprained my ankle walking down a stair and not looking at the uneven ground. Six weeks later and am still not albe to run.
About three weeks ago I started 'spinning' classes which is an excellent high intensity CV workout. I am trying to do it three times a week. I'm sure I will have lost some running fitness but my weight has been stable and it sure makes you feel good! I am not getting any pain from the injury even when standing on the pedals during the classes.
I am lucky as my local authority gym does classes so I pay as I go rather than having to pay expensive gym fees.
Good luck and hobble on.
