most of you know me and my condition.... so im not gonna go over it again
basically i was doing some work with my car (slowly getting it done on my good days.... doing the light work while my freinds do the hard stuff)... well the harmonic balancer ( a apx 20 pound pully the turns all the accerssories on your car) fell on my left ankle. there is no swelling and i CAN walk on it. I took and extra loratab for the pain... but it isnt going away.....  is an xray in order?? im not even thinkning of my back pain right now cause my ankle is throbbing....... i hate the hospital out here..... its aweful... and i have a feeling im just gonna sit around in a very uncomfortable chair for hours upon hours...
Im just a little concerned because around 6 months ago a freind of mine merely rolled his ankle in the shower and didnt get it looked at.... he has now lost muscle tissue and walks with a cane over something as small as a rolled ankle...
there isnt any signs of outstanding distress (i.e swelling color change) on my foot except for shooting and throbbing pain.,....
i really feel like a complainer sometimes.... im glad i have you guys to talk to....
Is er an option or should i wait ity out till morning?

Except for rare disorders, pain is the body's signal that something is wrong!! Get yourself in to your doc or clinic and get that thing x-rayed ASAP! Then let us know.
