Normally, I have very flexible knees and ankles. I have been off for a month and a half with forced inactivity though. Yesterday was my third day back. I was caught in a toe hold. Normally these don't even bother me. I do not think that I have been ever previously tapped from one. Last night, my ankle popped. Loudly. Now, my knees and ankles pop occasionally due to pressure, but this was loud. I didn't feel too bad last night, finished out rolling. I went back home, iced my ankle, then took a place to soak it. Afterwards, I put on icy hot. I noticed that there was swelling on the front part of the knob. Today there is a dull pain when I am not really moving but it is on the Achilles more than anything and I feel like I have normal range of motion. What I wanted to do was ankle brace it, wrap it, and give it a couple days. I think it feels pretty much normal but hurt. I know my body pretty well, but does anyone think it is a bad idea to give it a few days to see how it feels before possibly taking any other actions?
Yes, FRAT, I know.
