I am a Marine and I was doing some training to get ready to go back to Iraq. It is night time and I was on a patrol. I stepped into a hole and feel down. I twisted my ankle pretty bad. By the time that I got somewhere that I could check it out I could see the Swelling thru my boot. The next day i went to go and see about it. The Corpman took some x-rays but they could not get good angles because of the pain that it caused. The x-rays showed nothing broke. All they did was wrap it in an ace badage and give me motrin. I ended up having to go to the emergency room because of the pain and my ankle looked really bad. They took more x-rays and they came back negative also. The Dr. put me in a splint for 4 days. After the 4 days I took the splint off and most of the swelling was gone in my foot but not my ankle. I have the ankle wraped in an ace bandage and it still hurts. I also have pain that runs from the inside part of the ankle to my knee. When I walk it feels like a string is being pulled . I also of what feels like a knot on the top of my foot. I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what is wrong because I have had bad ankle sprains before but nothing like this. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Are you back in the States at the moment? If so, get a referal to a sports medicine specialist ASAP! I got lucky, the sports medicine specialist I was referred to works with several professional and national teams. So, when I needed his services as a rheumatologist later on, I didn't have far to go. In my experience, damaged ankle ligaments that don't heal correctly can cause a lot of problems later on, especially in a career like yours . Please get in to see a sports medicine specialist quickly.

I'm going to die rather sooner than I'd like. I tried to protect my neighbours from crime, and became the victim of it. Complications in hospital following this resulted in a serious illness. I now need a bone marrow transplant. Many people around the world are waiting for a marrow transplant, too. Please volunteer to be a marrow donor:
