2 weeks ago I twisted my ankle when running on some uneven ground. I carried on running on it ok after some initial pain. Anyway, it is still hurting me now. I have rested it a bit - still running but reduced mileage a little. It doesn't seem to hurt too much when I run, it actually hurts more when I walk than run and it gets worse when I stretch it e.g. pressing clutch in when driving.
When it first happened my ankle was badly swollen which has now reduced but he pain seems to have moved. It now hurts about 2 inches above my ankle on the outside of my leg.
Any ideas what the injury actually is and how to solve it? Don't want a long rest as I have a race in 2 weeks.
