I am a marathon runner.
Believe me: I am an expert at ankle problems I try to avoid doctors at all costs. However, I just broke my ankle (Weber A fracture) during a workout.
Believe it or not, my fracture hurt(s) a lot lett than a sprain or even shin splints.
However, you should realy have a doctor check it out---maybe somebody from your school. If not, a trip to the ER might be in order.
: I am experiencing intense pain in my left ankle and i wanted to know if there is anything i can do on my own to determine what is wrong with it as getting to a hospital/clinic would be quite a hassle. I cannot bear any weight on the ankle and have very limited rotation. i do not know if it is broken, but the pain is even greater than the last time i broke my ankle. if someone could help, it would be greatly appreciated. I am a student and i am very active in sports. thank you.
: P.S. i rolled my ankle when playing basketball. (landed on the ball after a jump.)
