i recently tripped and sprained my ankle, the pain was unbelievable that i just wanted to sit there and cry.when some good Samaritan helped me up,i could not even walk and had to take a taxi home.i had to go to a doctor to confirm nothing was broken because i couldn't even step on that foot.i have been on bed rest for almost 4 days now and have to be carried around or hop on one foot.who has gone through this and how did you cope?

I hope you have a speedy recovery soon. Our national badminton player Dato Lee Chong Wei also had suffered a sprained ankle before the Olympic game. He went for treatment and managed to heal in time for the Olympic Game and won the silver medal. I personally had gout on my ankle before. I can't even walk, I have to use crutches. Nowadays I have to watch what I eat so not to spark the gout.

Welcome to Mylot! Our elderly neighbour who is 94 had a fall recently, she called us one Sunday evening, she had fell and hurt herself, both my mother and I went round t see her we managed to get her sitting on her chair, she refused medical help, I made her a strong cup of tea, I think it was more the shock than anything, she hasn't been out for a weeks now, she did badly bruise her ankle in the fall, we check up her on daily, and when I went round to take her bins out for her, she came to the door, her ankle had healed up, I think she was going stir crazy being shut in not being able to get out. All her family live miles away from her.

I know what you are going through I have sprained my ankles quite a few times,I'm pretty susceptible to ankle injuries. The worst being when I broke two bones and dislocated another bone.Apparently the reason I get so many ankle injuries is because they are to flexible so I go over on them quite easily.When I sprain my ankle I find it useful to sit with my ankle elevated this helps in speeding up the reduction in swelling.When I broke my ankle I was advised to sit with it above my heart,as I needed the swelling to go down before they could take the stitches out.
