Wall weight can be a contributing factor it is most likely not the reason for you to be suffering this debilitating pain. All too often that is a quick and flippant answer provided by primary care or internal medicine physicians that don't have a clear understanding nor have done a thorough history and physical. There are a range of factors that can be part of the differential diagnosis from orthopedic problems to arthritic problems. I would encourage you to see a lower extremity specialist for a thorough consultation to determine what is the source of your discomfort. READ MORE
Ankle sprains are frequently under treated resulting in long-term sequelae. You need a foot and ankle specialist to determine if it is a grade I or II sprain/tear. Furthermore 20% of these injuries have an osteochondral defect or fracture associated with it and require an MRI. Failure to seek appropriate acute tear often results in long term injury, frequent re-sprains, of permanent DJD/osteoarthritis. The correct diagnosis is often missed in the emergency room. Seek the care of a Foot and Ankle specialist immediately. READ MORE
