Symptoms: acute paining

Doctor: Thank your question. Since you have had multiple ankle sprains it could be a possibility that you are developing arthri tis in this joint. Your unstable ankle, and pain has put extra strain on your knee resulting in pain there as well. An MRI of your ankle joint may be required in order to assess the effect of the multiple sprains. You can treat your pain with over the counter medications such as ibuprofen. We also recommend that you choose a lower impact for of exercise such as swimming or the elliptical trainer in order to reduce the impact on your joints.Thank you for choosing askthedoctor.com
