I'm not looking for a medical evaluation as to why this might be happening, and if it keeps up I intend on seeing a doctor.. I just want a few educated opinions on the matter. Lets start with the back story first... As a kid from the time I started walking I was always an active child. I was always outside running around, or climbing trees, or running/hiking through the wooks/corn fields around neighborhood. On top of that, when I got to the right age, and after trying t-ball for a year or two. This was boring to me, because they made us play the positions like a real baseball team, and at that age I could throw from the outfield to home plate in the air the whole way with accuracy. This was a problem because the coach always, ALWAYS put me in the outfield, and no one at that age could hit that far. Well, I got bored and decided to try soccer. I became a HUGE avid soccer player, but not a hardcore one because those leagues and the people in them were too hardcore for me, and there was no sportsmanship. I'm the type of player that will help someone on the other team up if I knock them down. But anyway, I played soccer from then on for about 9 years, indoor and outdoor. In the process of my childhood, because of how active I was and the sport I played, I've sprained both of my ankles more times than I can even begin to count. Well, for the past week or two, my ankle has been acting up and it feels like I've sprained it. It isn't swollen very much, or bruised at all, but I don't know what is causing it to hurt all of the sudden. I'm no more active than I have been for the past couple years, but this is the first time it's been acting up like this. The only reasons I can think of are maybe because the ligaments and cushioning for my ankle in the joint is damaged/deteriorated from the activeness and how many times I have sprained it. The only problem is... Why now when I'm not doing anything differently? And why only in the past couple weeks? You would think that if that was the case, it would have been acting up for a long time, not just now, and it just doesn't seem like that's the case because of that... Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
