Patient :My wife has chronic ankle pain in her left ankle and her left knee randomly gives out. Wednesday she was walking down the stairs and her knee gave out and she fell down 5 or 6 stairs sprained her left ankle and left knee (she has had multiple injuries in the past). We went to the ER she is back on crutches again with a knee immobilizer and a air cast on her ankle, non weight bearing. We have been to multiple doctors who say they can't see anything wrong with her ankle. She doesn't want to go back to see them again because they make her feel like she is making up the symptoms. Her ankle never feels stable to her and her knee will just give out, the only time they feel right is if she is wearing and ankle and knee brace. I have tried to convince her to wear them so she doesn't have to have pain but she won't because she say's the doctors all say there is nothing wrong.
