Lateral 2 ankle sprain

I fell down when I missed a bottom step spraining my ankle so severe that I couldn't walk for about 3 months without crutches and then I had a walking cast for about for about 4 mths., and PT 3 X a week. This whole process has taken 6 mths. so far. No one can figure out why behind my outside ankle bone it burns and sends pain up my leg.I do have popping, sometimes in the front left side of my shin, and sometimes on the left back side of it.When I sit in a chair and have anything touching the back of my leg, the burning pain worsens. The MRI's and x-rays show nothing but edema in my talus. I also have toe damage and the side of my foot radiates with pain. What do you think is causing this? It is a burning pain that never goes away. I'm now going to my fifth doctor, and no one seems to be able to figure this out. I've been to a regular doctor, emergency room dr., a podiatrist, a pain management clinic, an orthopedic dr., and now I'm being transferred to a specialist-orthopedic dr. So far I've had three cortisone shots, 2 MRI'S, 2 X'RAYS, and now I take pain killers and wear a lidocane patch. This to me is not curing the problem, only masking it. What do you think I should do next and do you know what this could be?

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.
