So I'm 22 and injured my foot playing soccer when I was about 17. I kicked the ground instead of the ball and my foot exploded in pain. Later my foot swelled but seeing as I was staying at my friend's house back then, I never saw a doctor and just walked around with a limp. That limp never left me and I've had weakness in my foot throughout the years. About 2 years ago I kicked the ground again, sprained my foot a few times, and now my foot clicks whenever I walk. I feel a consistent instability, chronic pain and my foot has weakened. I can't bear weight on my ankle anymore, let alone play sports. I've had several x rays done on both ankles by x ray offices. One office said I have arthritis at the talus; another a year later said there's nothing wrong with my ankle. What do I do now?View Thread
