Default Time for the doctor?

I think it might be.

When I was 22 or around there I was walking to a class and took a bad step and fell down. All the way to the ground and my ankle popped really loudly. It was searing pain up my leg to the point that my eyes teared up. I had a test or something important so I stood up for a few minutes, holding my foot off the ground then limped to class. My ankle swelled up really big and turned purple. A&M is a big campus though and I continued walking on it a lot the next few days just to get to class.

3 days later and I fell again going down some stairs. All the way to the ground again and ended up having to sit on the stairs for a while before being able to put any weight on it.

Fast forward some time and I bet I re-injured it 4 or 5 more times that semester. Since then it goes in spurts. It's been doing really well until last week. I've fallen all the way down 5 times this week. Sunday I fell really badly and scraped up my knees and my hands. I fell again at work today. Nothing major just took a step and whoosh. Argh, it's so frustrating.

I can't run on it either and can make it pop every time I move it. I've tried an ankle brace but it always seems to make it ache more. I guess I for sure should stop wearing heels. And try to lose some weight.

I am terrified of having to have surgery on it.

Sounds like you do need to find out what's going on with it. That's a lot of trauma.

Yeah it's been going in and out for four years now. I was hoping it would magically go away.

It usually doesn't swell up anymore. After a minute or so I can usually put weight on it and after walking on it a bit, it feels better.

I'd think at least an x-ray is in order. I sprained mine badly playing basketball -- it swelled like you described yours -- and I had to do a lot of exercises to strengthen those muscles again.

I think I really just needed to hear someone else tell me to buck up and go.

I always wonder if it has anything to do with being in pointe ballet so long.

Ballet should have strengthened those muscles though.

Do you go straight to an orthopedic type of place?

I'd try for that, but your insurance may require that you have a referral from your GP.
