I sprained my ankle 2-3 weeks ago and it is still not getting better. It is so frustrating. I have tried to stay off of it as much as possible. Prop it up every evening and ice it. Never have I had a sprain that has so much pain. Well, I will just have to keep babying it but I wish it would just get better.

Hope it does soon SierraCook. I know the annoyance you are going thru. I have been accident/injury prone recently and have had two infections in the same foot (one week apart), a ulcer (according to the podiatrist - but I have my doubts personally) on my big toe of the other foot, a rather large gash from a neighbour's cat on my shin that has required AB's and a tetnus shot and is still infected nearly two weeks later, and have pulled a tendon in the thigh of my same leg!!! My mum went out last week and bought me a walking stick!!! LOL Nothing as painful as a sprained ankle though. All impediments to getting things done though.

Are you wearing a good ankle brace? If not get one to wear when you are on your feet it will help a lot. Make sure it fits properly. I like the velcro type so I can adjust the tightness myself.

Thanks, Bilby and jpmcgrew. I have an ankle brace that I was fitted for by my podiatrist. Unfortunately, this is not the first time I have sprained this ankle and that is why she gave me a good ankle brace. My brother got married this weekend and I think that I overdid walking on my ankle helping with the wedding, etc. Luckily, at work I have been assigned alot of office and computer work. So, that will keep me off my feet. Normally, this time of the year I would be walking around the forest getting ready for the summer field season.

Thanks everyone and I apologize for this taking up so much of this thread.
No need to apologize,that is why this thread is here..Gives us all a chance to reach out and support and know others care..Glad Tara is getting some help at last.

New developments on my son, Justin. He had some more blood work done yesterday to check his thyroid. Thursday, he goes in to radiology for a thyroid scan. His pediatrician wants to check that everything's running okay with the thyroid. He goes to the endocrinologist on Monday and then to see an ENT the following week. Drs. want to make sure what they are dealing with when the surgery takes place in 4 weeks. I'm hopeful that all will go well. Thank you for your continued prayers for my son. I'll keep you posted.
