You really should make an appointment with a podiatrist for further evaluation and treatment recommendations. The fact that you do not have insurance, while unfortunate, does not mean you can not see a doctor. I can not tell you what this is without an examination. To see is to know, not to see is to guess.

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
