Ankle pain constantly for over about 2 months

Hi, my daughter has had a lot of ankle pain over the last 2 months. She has complained to me about it hurting on the right outside of her ankle every time she walks and even when she sits or lays down. She has tripped and fallen before, but never very hard. She is a very active 12 year old and regularly(just not recently) competes in figure skating and does gymnastics. We have tried wraps and even crutches, but the pain wont go away. We have seen several doctors and we insist of xrays but they just dont give them to us and they insist she is fine. Do you have any thoughts of what we should do?

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
