Sprained Ankle this morning

Posted: 15/10/2014 at 17:40
Hi there

Just wondering how long it took you to recover.

I went over on my ankle earlier today and it's not swollen but can feel something isn't right when walking and I did the hop test and it hurts after a few hops so my run is definitely out.

Hi Millsy

Well done on the 20 miles and your post made me chuckle and equally comforting.

Yup I hear you about the niggles. I just stretch and massage and strengthen a lot more now on the advice from my physio. I was up to 13 miles on my long run and maintained that for about 3 months before got the injury back at Xmas time. I'm no longer ignorant to listening to my body for any danger signs and mainly from feeling. I run every other day or two days. Never two days in row as I can't do that.

Good luck with your mileage!

Hee. Yes it does sound quite ridiculous. Think sometimes other people's perspectives do set your mind back on track again.

Thanks and it's been a slow build up but I do a little victory dance in my mind every time I finish a run as I know how hard they are.

Hi I have now managed to build up to 12 miles of running again after spending most of this year recovering from posterior tibialis tendinitis. My question is am I being to hard on myself for not feeling I've completed the full run as I had to stop a few times to cross a few busy roads and for a loo stop? Just wanted people's views on this. Thanks

please can someone help?

I have had sesamoiditis a few times. Not had it for over a year now and when it did have it I rested for a couple of weeks until the pain under the sesamoids started to ease. Also bought pads which I cut into shape and placed it under the sesamoids to ease pressure whilst walking and to aid the healing. Google this method for a better description. Went to physio who also massaged the area.

I started to run about two weeks after a break from running. Cycled and swam instead. Started to ease back into running gently with a little tenderness still remaining but I didn't overdo it. The pain didn't get worse with running and with the pads and applying caution it eventually went.

Hope this helps.

I posted on here 6 months ago agonising about this. I was in denial to start with and carried on running. This wasn't a good idea. I increased spinning and swimming instead and I'm now making a running come back. Now back up to 8 miles but I'm not ignorant to this rubbish injury and have made sure I rest and keep up with the strengthening exercises.

Wish you all the best with your recovery. It will eventually come. Don't lose hope.

Had same response after visiting the docs yesterday (been suffering with Posterior Tibialis Tendinitis for past 4 months) - doc told me to take ibuprofen before a run, and that running is bad for you and no point going for a MRI scan as it wouldn't show up anything.

Thought I'd pop in with feedback.
I spent 8 weeks not running just bikes and swimming. Did a ten min jog on treadmill 3 weeks ago and felt niggle in the ankle so I stopped. Then had the similar nag for a few days. A further 3 weeks and walking a few miles seemed fine so I went out for a run. A slow 5k felt fine when running but today felt achey in general but still weakness in the ankle. So I'm no further forward.
Just thought I'd give the update.
This is a a nightmare to get rid of.

Hello and thanks both for replies. Thought I was going out of my mind yesterday I mean there are plenty people worse of than me and there I was being self pitiful. Think it just overwhelmed me. Also I find a release of my anxieties through runniing and without this it just makes me even more anxious.

I will start strengthening my glutes. I saw a pod a few years ago and he too suggested glute strengthening. I'm trying to be positive too and am listening to advice.

Thank you and wish you both we'll too.
