    so sorry you are suffering. did the drs not suggest an alternative pain management? i cant image going thru my accident without something for the pain

    can you take anything for anxiety? did you have surgery on your ankle hope you get some relief soon

    big deep breathing breaths. high up arm stretching and slow neck roles helped me. still do them daily. I'm 6 months post surgery and still in lots of pain when walking on one crutch. be patient and try to trust that you will be fine.

    Dont panic. !!! Go out and get an ankle wrap that takes iced water and an AIRCAST cooler (Cryo/Cuff. You can get small ice making unit for approx £60 to fill cooler. Good luck problem solved.

    Have you tried different pain medication or ice? Do you have people around/good books/tv programmes lined up to distract you. About a week after surgery my pain greatly reduced.

    It will get easier
