Ankle Still Aching

October 16th, 2012 at 03:13 pm

A few Mondays back (a month back, just checked the calender) I fell and twisted my ankle. It was puffy and swollen for pretty much the whole week after. Then it was bruised and tender. Now it just hurts occasionally when I step a certain way or flex it just so. I sure hope it all heals up and I don't have any long term pain.

In other news, I bought DD a new pair of athletic shoes this weekend. October seems to be the time of year when I buy new shoes. Changing season, worn out summer shoes..yada, yada. She can now wear women's sizes. Her shoes were $70. I told her to take very good care of them because they will have to last all school year.

DS didn't get left out. I bought him a pair of jeans and two long sleeve tshirts off the clearance rack at Gymboree for a total of $20. I was pretty pleased with that because the regular price just for the jeans was $23. There were some crazy adorable PJs that I wanted to get, but they were not on clearance and cost $21. I'm going to check (maybe even call the store) in a week or two and see if they get marked down. Smile

    Do you think you badly sprained your ankle? Did you damage ligaments? What treatment did you give yourself? Compression/ACE bandage? Cold pak? Treat it kindly and give it rest as it takes a while for ligaments to repair.

    Thanks snafu.
    I figure I did over-streached some ligaments. The week after I hurt it I elevated and iced it when I could.

    I had to chuckle at the shoes having to last all school year - when my girls were the age of yours, it was a very lucky year that didn't have more than one athletic shoes purchase (actually it was when they stopped growing Smile ) Never did figure out how to slow down their growing up..... And agreed, what a price shock going from children's sizes to the adult's!

    Sorry about your ankle - hope it gets better soon!

    Ankles are tricky mechanisms. You might want to get it professionally checked out.

    Littlegopher - I should have included a little *wink* after that statement. All I can do is hope, hope, hope they'll last. Smile
    Thanks everyone for the get-well-wishes on the ankle. Smile
