I'm a 17 year old girl and I need advice on some problems I've been having with my ankle. About a month ago, I twisted my ankle at a volleyball practice. It hurt, but it wasn't particularly bad at the time. I've twisted my ankles many times before in my time playing volleyball, and it felt just like any of the other times. It was sore the next day, which was unsurprising. A couple days later it was still sore, but I just figured it was taking its time to resolve. I went to a school dance and other volleyball practices, as I can walk but it's uncomfortable. Now, a month later, I still can't point my toes on that foot and it's still very uncomforable to walk. My mother suggested turning the ankle, so I have been, but that increases the discomfort and it cracks very loudly each time I turn it. Last night, it hurt more than usual, and it was hard to fall asleep because there wasn't a position I could rest my leg that wasn't uncomfortable. As I've said, I've twisted my ankle many times before,but they've never taken this long to resolve. I used to wear braces on my ankles to prevent twisting, but this made my shins hurt very badly so I stopped. I haven't seen a doctor, but I'm just wondering how soon this should go away? Thank you.
