Have healing problem: Wrong foods can prevent you from healing. For next three weeks eliminate cereals, juices, sodas, corn products, banana, and pineapples. Also most patents that go to plant base protein feel much better. So eliminate chicken, turkey, beef and pork. See your doctor to have your Thyroid checked. Add folic acid 400 mcg and Vit D3 2000 U. to daily food. Just remember D3 is fat soluble.

Weak Ankle: The first thing I would do is see an Sports doc and get an xray. Likely a course of PT will be able to correct the problem.
