I sprained my ankle very badly three years ago. So bad that I heard a couple of loud pops when I fell, and I was walking with a noticeable limp for two weeks. I couldn't run at full speed for a month. Since then, I rolled over that ankle twice more that year. Since I was an stubborn college student then, I didn't go to the doctor after each sprain. I figured the ankles would simply heal themselves. Anyway, three years later, that ankle feels very weak. If I stay off my foot for a couple of hours, it gets painful for me to put any pressure on that foot. It usually takes about 30-minutes of walking before the pain goes away. I'm not sure if it "really" goes away though --- sometimes I get the impression my foot just gets a bit numb to the pain and I don't feel it anymore. Regardless, if I stay off my foot again (ie sleeping), when I stand up the pain is back. The pain is somewhere above the arch of my foot, along the inner side of the foot. Any wild guess on what possible damages my ankles may have suffered? Is it safe for me to jog with the pain, or will that not be a good idea? I will probably go see a doctor at the first opportunity. I work six days a week, nine to five. And I can't leave work for at least the next month or so. I just wanted to know if it's generally a good (or bad) idea to jog with painful a ankle?
