Re: Ankle Injury 4 + years

Without examining your ankle I can not give you specific information.

From your description, you have a chronic unstable ankle. In addition to spraining or tearing the ankle ligaments, possibly a fracture occurred or a tendon tore (one of the peroneals).
In situations as you describe I almost always get a MRI so we know what we are dealing with.

Is there a podiatrist or orthopedist who treats patients at your school? If so, then see if you can see them. If not then call several offices and see who can work with you.

It is difficult to say that an ankle brace (and which kind?) would be of benefit. I realize you do not have unlimited finances, but don't go buying something off the internet that you do not have any idea about.

Good luck.
