Ankle pain when running or twisting it


Q: My ankle has been hurting the past year or so and I have been asking my mom to take me to go and have it checked out but she never would. Te part where it hurts is the ball part. I get a real bad sharp pain when I twist my ankle or when I run. It hasn't swelled from what I have seen. I havnt really been paying attention or looking after it to see if it was swelling so I wouldnt know if it has or not. I just didn't know if I had an extra bone in my ankle or what

Symptoms:  Pain in the ankle
