Question: Should I get an X-ray?

I landed wrong one day playing basketball and was in extreme pain and couldn’t move my leg for a couple minutes. For the next couple of days I had a limp when I walked and it hurt to move my leg a certain way. It’s now been like three months and I still have pains near my inner ankle/ outer ankle and Achilles’ tendon when I play soccer or put pressure on the area. I’m 19 if that matters.

Question: Is this normal or is this just something my body did to adapt?

So years ago I could rotate both of my ankles and I’d only feel cracking if I had been still too long but as I got older I’ve eventually noticed (and unconsciously did as a type of tic) that if I rotated my right ankle, it would ALWAYS crack what felt like multiple times and audibly too. I can do it right now if I wanted to, just spin my ankle and it cracks in the same place every time.

Anyway I’m curious if this is my body compensating for something I did many times in school when playing soccer.

I used to be pretty clumsy and would roll my right ankle quite a bit. Though the more times I did it, the less time the pain lasted until finally the worst of the pain was a slight twinge before I was off on my merry way as if I hadn’t done it in the first place.

I thought it was just my pain tolerance increasing but could it have possibly been a result of my body adapting to my constant accidental abuse of my ankle?

I mean, your body is always trying to compensate for any type of abuse that causes you pain and could be harmful. So could mine have done something to the joints in my ankle to compensate for the many times I ended up rolling it?

Orrr is it just me overthinking it and it’s just my joints naturally wearing down?

Question: My parents won’t take me to a doctor? Back pain for over a month!?

I am a 16 year old figure skater. I skate 5 hours a week and compete, but I’m not an intense athlete or anything, I just do double jumps. Over a month ago, I was doing a lay back spin (you spin and lean backwards, pushing your hips forward). I have been doing this spin for a few years. Immediately after, my lower back began to hurt, which has never happened while doing this spin. Fast forward over a month later, and it is still hurting, particularly after skating early in the morning. It will go away for a week or so and only be a dull pain, then I will skate in the morning and it will be back and worse. My coach told me to try doing stretches that round my back before I skate, and it has not been working. It hurts when I’m sitting, walking, when I lower my head to look down at something….it is now interfering with my skating, and I know that skating is actually making it worse (it hurts more after I skate than any other time). My parents REFUSE to take me to a doctor because they think I am making a big deal out of something small, and I just need to ignore it. My mom basically said she thinks I’m making it up (weird because I’ve never done that before). They’re taking it all wrong though, I just want it to STOP hurting! Even if we go to the doctor and all they say is that I need to take a break from skating, then that’s what I’ll do! My mom thinks I’m asking for surgery or something honestly. What do I do? Also, if I take it upon myself to just not skate for a week and see if it makes a difference, my mom has threatened to punish me because she thinks it is a waste of her money. She thinks that I am pulling this because I am upset that some of my jumps haven’t been working lately, and claims she can “see right through me”. I get so frustrated when I hear this because I literally just want to transfer the pain in my back to her so she can just feel what I’m feeling and understand why it’s an issue!

Question: Dislocated kneecap causing problems years later?

So I dislocated my kneecap 10 years ago, when I was 10. I had a few times where it hurt but I pushed through the pain playing sports. Well I’m trying to get into running as I want to join the military but my knee has been hurting a lot. I can only run a mile right now because I’m new to it but even after that my knee is swollen and hurts a lot, mostly at the very bottom pointy part of my kneecap. Does anyone know what causes this pain or if this is going to disqualify me from joining the military? Thanks!
