Ankle-it is.: Often it is not a matter of what you did just today. It is more than likely the cumulative effect of the activities that you have done over the last several or many days.

Yes: The soreness at the site of injection is normal. This should gradually improve. If the pain is getting worse then there is a cause for concern and you should contact the same doctor again.

I've sprained ankle and the muscles on my calf are sore I have bruising around joint and atfl should I be very worried i can walk but it hurts abit ?

I've sprained ankle and the muscles on my calf are sore I have bruising around joint and atfl should I be very worried i can walk but it hurts abit ?

Probably not.: Without a physical exam, it's difficult to know the severity of your injury, but if it only hurts a bit when you walk, you probably only have a mild atfl sprain and mild calf sprain. If it's a new injury (<72 hrs), then follow the rice protocol (google it) and limit activities which cause increased pain. If your ankle feels unstable, you can buy a relatively inexpensive ankle splint at the store. ...Read more

With : With multiple joint problems that have spanned years, you may be developing some kind of arthritic condition.

Your best starting point is your primary care physician, who can order blood tests and get x-rays of these painful joints, and perhaps then refer you to a rheumatologist (in the case of an arthritic condition) or an infectious diseases specialist (in the case of an insect bite that caused an infection). ...Read more

Can i still be growing at 27 all my joint are really sore more my knees and ankels also effecting my lower bk to

Doubtful: To the point i would say no. You may have a form of arthritis. Another possibility from a podiatric point of view is you may have bad flat feet or pronation, which with a bad foundation can cause the symptoms you describe. I believe your growing days are over, now see a doctor so you can get rid of your pain. ...Read more
