I fell over whilst I was doing some jogging in pe as I can’t participate,I landed quite awkwardly on top of my ankle,ever since I have been quite severely limping,but ever since 1 week past I can’t rlly put any weight onto my foot(usually hopping everywhere) my ankle is swolllen,and I often get pins and needles and have constant pain usually quite sever causing me to cry,my mum knows,and I saw a doctor last week,the doctor laughed it off and said come back in a week,and told me I would be fine(I’m not)
The tendon that goes over the arch of your foot is so painful it’s actually unreal! I have a lump on the back of my heel,my Achilles’ tendon is rlly painful,the tip of my tib/fib at my ankle is always tender,and there is swelling,my mum knows about all the swelling and tells me to take ibeprofen which didn’t help with pain or swelling,so I don’t take it anymore as I’m trying to be careful on what I take and also there is no point taking it if it does nothing! I’ve asked my mum for another appointment but use sais no,I’ve mentioned A&E but she sais no because it’s the Christmas season and the hospital is very busy(which I understand) but she does nothing,and I dk how to cope over the Christmas period!😭 I usually just lie in bed all day,and cry,but obviously I can’t on Xmas.
I’m just wondering if any1 has any ideas on how to cope,and things to do to distract me??
Thanks for your time and help/advice
