So when I was 13 years old I broke, fractured and dislocated my ankle on a trampoline. Had pins and plates... Not sure how many pins as I was only 13. Anyway, I have been doing okay until about the past year or so that when wearing certain trainers that it rubs on my ankle I think maybe where a pin is and it can be painful, but I just put that down to the type of shoe I was wearing.
Anyway, fast forward to now and I seem to have some ankle pain nothing too severe that I can't walk on it but it's still annoying, and also when I move my ankle it like clicks/creaks (I don't know if that makes any sense). I have read about having the pins removed but I have general anxiety disorder and it terrifies me so much, that they will remove the pins and then I will be too scared to walk on it again. I have a 3 year old daughter who needs me to be "active" and I have type 1 diabetes.
I have put on quite a bit of weight in the last year due to certain antidepressants and having to go on steroids for atleast 3 months - so I assume that the weight gain hasn't helped my ankle either.
I would go to my GP but i don't want to waste there time and to see if i can manage to lose weight and to see if that helps.
