I was playing a good game of squash today when I made a sudden change in direction and a felt this pain shoot up from my ankle. I called a time out and let her play against my bro instead so I could sit down and just assess the damage.
The throbbing pain was slowly subsiding and the pain that I felt when I moved around was also getting less. I walked up and down a bit and by the time I was done with that, the pain had disappeared completely and I declared myself fit again to play.
Later in the evening, I stood up and it felt as though someone had stabbed me in the ankle. I put my hand up against the wall to stop me from falling over and sat back down. This time the pain didn’t subside and it just got ten times worse when I put any weight on it. Now I’m just lying in bed with a very sore ankle.
I’ve heard that you can easily treat a sprained ankle at home so I iced it for a while and then wrapped it up. It’s still throbbing with pain at the moment and any movement makes it worse, it doesn’t matter if I put any weight on it or just move it across the bed. Just my luck, we don’t have any painkillers in the house at the moment so it’s going to be a very long night…
