So after badly spraining my ankle 8 weeks ago I finally went to the walk in centre and got it checked and had an X-ray. I explained how I'd done it during the warm up for a race for life and that it's still swollen and very painful. Staff were fab and sent me straight for an X-ray. Came back all clear. Only thing that's getting to me is that the nurse said "you see, with soft tissue damage you're looking at 4-6 weeks to heal" to which I answered "it's already been 8". Her answer: "oh." So I left feeling no further forward and the fear that they haven't looked at it properly. I'm going stir crazy not running, it's affecting my weight and my mood (just ask my husband). It sucks. Xx
