We’re getting there! It mostly doesn’t hurt now. It’s just bad if I move it certain ways. I still can’t go up on my toes at all, and it’ll randomly twinge from time to time, but overall I think we’re finally making progress (5 weeks later).
Still no running :( Hoping another two weeks or so and I’ll be back there.
Still not healed. Starting to go crazy.
Went to the doctor on Saturday and got sent off for x-rays and a CT, which showed that I don’t have any fracture (yay!) but I do have extensive ligament and muscle damage (boo!).
The verdict? Just keep resting and stay off it as much as possible. He also prescribed some paracetamol + codeine for the discomfort, which helped me sleep a bit better last night. Sleep has been an issue lately because any time I move my ankle in my sleep, I wake up in pain.
UNAMUSED to put it mildly, kids.
I’m taking this week completely off exercise in the hope that this will help me heal faster. I’d rather have a week off totally than another few weeks where I basically can’t do anything.
Seriously: I always said I hated running. But now that I physically can’t go running, ALL I WANT TO DO IS GO RUNNING.
