Q: Iam a skateboarder and while jumping a 7 sets of stairs i landed clean but i have felt that i have compressed my ankle (maybe overstetched it) after the incident when pointing my toes down i had a very small pain behind or maybe the achilles themselvs and also in my lateral and also my medial ligaments, the pain i experienced felt more of high discomfort or a pinch than pain, I could walk with no pain but only discomfort after doing a couple of stretches for my achilles tendons the pain was felt in my lateral and medial ligaments only , note that I can walk with no pain and can also lift my heel and walk on tip toes with no pain , iv also noticed a very small bruising with no discoloring very minor just rose red in a part thats located left side of my right ankle in the bottom left i think its called talus also pain in the front right part of my ankle , very small pain , after waiting a week with stretching i got on my board and when i do a trick i feel this compression again with a bit more painful sensation in both of those ankle parts and the feeling of a stretched achilles and calv , also when sleeping i can feel numbness in my talus part and abit in the achilles , also blood flow is felt in the small bruised area , all in all very small discomfort if iam not skating and abit painful if iam doing tricks with my skateboard.
