My ankle is ruined I reckon.
It had been sore for a while (two weeks ago, and especially so these last few days) but I ran on it today thinking that it was feeling ok - mistake. Now I am a limpy girl and the ankle has swollen up quite badly.
It's swollen on the outside under the sticky-outy bone thing (what is that called?), and hurts when I press on it.
Here are my questions: How long should I rest it for? Should I get a support bandage? Am I doing my ankle lasting damage by trying to be a runner (since I have flat feet and weird ankles anyway)? What should I doooooooo??
Any help would be v much appreciated, for I am worried/frustrated.
