    Ankle Sprain

    I sprained my ankle about 6/7 months ago and it still hurts, I didn't do RICE because I didn't know about it at the time. I went to the doctor about 1 month ago and he said it was just a ligament strain and it will take ages to heal. I can walk on it and most of the time I don't feel any pain but I get shooting pains throughout the day for about 30 seconds at a time and they can be painful. Should I go back to him and ask for an x-ray or is he right and will it take ages to heal?

    Thanks.

    Go see an Ortho.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    I was thinking that, could brake the bank though but will be worth it I guess.
