i injured my ankle playing soccer on July 23rd. I tripped and it kind of folded under me and i heard a crack and it immediately started swelling and got stiff, but i kept playing, even though every step hurt. it never really swelled up that much, which was a little weird to me, considering i have sprained that same ankle probably 3 times before and it swelled more all of those times. this time probably hurt the worst of all the times i have sprained it.
after i hurt it, i played for 3 more days (not the best idea, i know but it was very important to me to play), but then i took 3 weeks off and did nothing. there was not a lot of improvement in that time, but i could not take more time off because my high school soccer season started right away. so now, here i am, with the same kind of pain as 15 weeks ago, and i don't know what to do... i haven't gone to the doctor, mostly because i'm afraid of being told not to play for a while, but i cant do that...
any advice or opinions is greatly appreciated!
