Hello good people of patient.info,
I've been battling an injured ankle for the past 9 months. I just want to note I haven't had it examied as I don't have health insurance. It wasn't rolled but slammed down with a lot of force sending shock through the whole foot. What's so weird about it is the pain will go away relatively quickly. I've continued skateboarding since (I know I know, terrible idea. I literally don't think I can stop, it's the only thing keeping me sane). Every few times I skate I'll plant my foot to hard in the wrong way and get that same shooting pain through my foot, yet I can walk it off within a few minutes and be mostly fine. It does get sore sometimes but right now I can rotate it completely without any pain, just a slight popping. I stretch it a lot and I just ordered some collagen peptides. I eat pretty damn healthy most of the time, fruits, veggies pasture-raised meats and eggs. What else can I do to speed up recovery. I would love any insight from someone who's been a similar situation. I don't think this is considered a sprain so I don't even know where to begin to research. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!
