I'm just curious if I'm just overreacting or if there is something seriously wrong with my ankle. This ankle is just unlucky. Two years ago, I rolled my ankle pretty bad but it seemed to heal pretty well. Then the next year, I happened to sprain my ankle during cross-country season. I wore a brace and took a week off just like the doctor said. I returned to the sport, where ankle pain and rolling my ankle became an everyday normal. I just assumed that it was a part of the sport because of previous injuries, but it was reoccurring. Then, the big sprain came. After a couple of X-rays, a high ankle sprain which the doctor said could have came from all the rolling and not taking care of it. I was in crutches and a boot for three months. I took great care of ankle during this time, making sure I could make it for track season. Track season brought a slightly swollen ankle and ankle pain, but nothing that bothered me so much I had to stop. However, even when I walk for a long time like when we go to amusement parks, the pain reoccurs. I seem to have bad ankle stability because my ankle rolls and gives out on me every so often. Then, yesterday, I was playing with a little kid I babysit a when I injured the same ankle again. We were jumping up and down and when I landed all I felt was pain in the ankle. I believe I landed on a ledge where the floor ledge changed heights. Either way, it hurts to walk on it and putting too much pressure hurts. I feel the worse of the pain when I'm just sitting down. The ankle isn't swollen that much, but the pain is similar to the pain I felt with my high ankle sprain and in the same place. It is a little tender and there is a small bruise.
Is there something causing this reoccurring pain that I usually feel. Is there some underlying reason that this keeps happening. Should I get an MRI on the ankle? I need a bit of guidance in this. Thank you!
