I just came back from the dr's and he put me on soma for my muscle spasms and kept me on lortab for my back pain. My ankle is no better the dr. thinks I sprained my ankle and he ordered x rays and a ankle brace.  I need some support . I already have my back pain and muscle pain to deal with and now I have a sprained ankle to  deal with also. I feel like it never ends.I hope everyone has a lpd.

Hi Kara-

I feel for you with all that you have going on. I sprained my ankle severely at one time and it was awful! shocked   Hobbled around with a brace for weeks. Did the Dr. mention icing your ankle or anything else? Time was the healer for me.

I'm sorry Kara. The last thing we need is pain on top of pain. I hope your ankle gets better soon. Wearing the brace will probably throw everything else off so be careful.
 
luv and hugs

I'm sorry  you are feeling so badly.  Life can be really tough sometimes.  But, hopefully you will feel better soon and this will only be a bad memory.

I'm so sorry! I hope your ankle heals quickly. We have enough to deal with, we don't need injury on top of it.

I hope this makes you smile:
I sprained my ankle wading in a creek when I was about 12. Walking back to my towel on the grass, I stepped on a bumble bee with my other foot! After the initial shock, I had to laugh along with my friends. Talk about bad karma. And I did make a pretty funny sight waddling along :S
Waiting for appointment with rheumy (March 2009) to get an official dx. waiting, waiting, waiting....
Taking malic acid/magnesium combo, what a life saver! and amitriptyline
