I really need some help here. I am 12 years old and i broke my ankle about 5-6 years ago and to this day i still have chronic pain in the left ankle. I'll explain what happened so it may help someone who can help me figure out what's wrong.
about 6 years ago i was going to throw away a palm tree limb that had fallen down and i fell into a ditch which caused me to twist my ankle in a painful way. My family didn't think it was broken and just told me to wrap it and put ice and elevate it. They would also massage it in a certain way so my knots in my foot would relax. I would also do dance after school. I had been doing dance for 3 years at that time and would work 12 hours a week at dance. But after complaining for 2 years i went to a doctor and they only told me it was sprained and sent me to a specialist. I went to the specialist and all they told me was that I had broken it and that because i had been dancing it healed on its own and they told me that it was just my achilles that was bothering me and thats it. Now in between those 6 years. I've been to 3 different specialist and to the hospital more than 5 times. They all say that i sprained it or that it was broken prior to coming and that it healed. But it still hurts and I'm in a lot of pain and I'm just tired of it and i really need help. Someone please tell me what to do.
