Thank you for taking the time to look at this. I'm sorry it's quite long.
[How it happened]
Around summer of 2008, I was walking down some stairs and half way down I tripped. When I tripped my left foot kind of slipped and lost some balance. Out of fear of falling down the stairs and injuring myself, I decided to jump off, being able to use just my right foot to launch - causing me to be at a sideways angle upon landing, with my left side facing forward. (Was about 6 stair fall) When I fell I landed bad on my left angle and injured it (it went inward), like a sprained ankle.
[What I did after]
I did do a bit of work on the ankle for about a month cause of work/walking, giving it as much rest as possible though. When it hadn't healed I done everything to give it as much rest as possible, and paid my doctor a visit. He told me not much could be done and suspected, I believe, a "bruised bone." Told me to ice it, spell the alphabet with toe for rehab - as I did for a few months. I thought it worked because I few months later I was completely fine. I'm a high school student and was going to rejoin high school track and with the long down time I started to go running to get more fit. After running I can feel the ankle pain as small stings when I move it a bit. Out of anger of not being able to run (which i love to do), I'd still perform rehab and would strap up the ankle with a stretchable 2ft strap as a small support and would do short 15 minute runs every other day. Till this day the sting still occurs after some runs when i move it deeply inward. just a very small sting.
Right now it would be a dream for this to heal! I want to go running again. I'd also like to know if it's even possible to heal, and if anyone has any idea of what's going on to my ankle, or anything to help, please tell me. ; ;
Thank you very much for reading this, I appreciate all who helps.
