Hi, new to patient.info lioking to get some advice about my foot/ankle problems.
Well I have a history of spraining my ankles from sports like basketball, probably around 3 times each ankle or so but my right possibly more.
I notice my right ankle pronates alot when walking, more so then the left by a few degrees. When i relax my feet barefoot I notice my right ankle is looser and pronates more but both sides are bad. Basically thinking at this point that I need surgery to tighten the ligaments that ive stretched or possibly torn. Going for mri's soon just waiting for doc yo get back from vacation. Just wondering if this sounds like I need surgery or if this sounds like deja vu to any of you guys. Looking for advice or insite as this is causing me to limp, feels like more weight is being put on my right hip. When walking on sidewalks that elevate my right side its uncomfortable as I can really feel that sensation mentioned above. Sorry for ranting or if the way I described my situation is sloppy but I'm really having a hard time walking and feeling even. Any advice is welcome an appreciated. Maybe If If I get a brace and symptoms decrease its a good indication I need surgery? Thank you.
