Stop exerting that ankle and consult an orthopaedic physician specializing in sports medicine
as soon as possible. No excuses for not doing that.
I injured my left ankle while reaching for a backhand 4 weeks ago and experienced minor discomfort. I ignored it and played for the next week or so and worsened the condition to the point where I could not walk. That is when I started researching on the internet for ankle injuries and came to the conclusion that it was an ankle ligament tear
. One week later, the physician informed me it was peroneal tendonitis
. Huge difference
between the two as explained in the links below. The physician informed me that my recovery would have been shorter if I had treated it as soon as it happened. Don't waste any time and consult an orthopaedic physician specializing in sports medicine. Good luck in your recovery.
p.s.: I am watching Tennis Channel and exercising my arms a lot as I undergo anti-inflammatory medication and physical therapy now.
