So sorry:( Sounds like it could be tendonitis - I had it a few years ago. I had to stop running for 3 months and take PT. I was lucky to be able to run again. I still do the stretches that the PT gave me and try to watch for signs of any strain on my tendon. My advice is to see a podiatrist.
It's been two weeks, you've tried "home remedies" & it still hurts. I think you need to see a doctor. I'd start with your general / primary care doctor to determine what's wrong. If you need to see a specialist he/she will let you know. You don't want to do further damage & you want to learn to prevent this is the future.
Go to your regular doctor. Could be a spran. Or something else. You prob have to get x rays done. But ice will help. Hope you get better I know how frustrating it can be.

Obviously asking the doctor/PT/or some professional is a good idea. Other than that, the best advice if you have an ankle/foot/leg type injury, there are upper body exercises, chair exercises, and various exercises that can be done without involving your foot/leg.
With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.
NO IMPACT exercises. You will do long term/permanent damage. I have a damaged knee and while I can do boot camp because we have a trainer who adjusts my exercise to fit my problem, but I cant do insanity because its high impact.
I will NOT run emotionally from compliments and hide in fat layers for protection.

Oh I feel your pain :( I've been having back issues myself so I automatically went to the chiropractor. I was told to avoid high impact and heavy weights...which eliminates my current ST and running program..boo hoo. I would warn you to expect to be told to stay off of it BUT I am no expert. I can't even be sure which doctor to recommend...I would start with general doc if it were my ankle. Some one on here with more awareness may be able to give better guidance on this.
Hope you get the answers you're looking for and also, hope for a speedy recovery!
Everything we do in life is a choice...I choose to get fit & healthy.

Hi Team, I've learned to incorporate exercise into my daily routine and it keeps me sane and healthy. I run, do exercise dvds, and go to kickboxing classes. Two weeks ago I noticed that my ankle (above the bone) started hurting.
I'm in a bit of denial and thought that it was a mild sprain that would correct itself. After icing, lessening impact and elevating - it still freaking hurts.
Any suggestions on what this could be and what type of doctor I should consult (physical therapist, chiro, general doc., etc.)? I just don't want to be told that I can't exercise.
