    Yeah ive done it once, couldnt walk on it for a few days without it hurting. My mam tore the tendons in her leg last year and had about 4 months off work, she was in agony when she done it, but i got the pleasure of doing the housework until she could walk :(

    does anyone else think Spie's account has been hacked into?

    or possibly that he has taken some form of "medication"

    I've never sprained my ankle, had a runny nose *or* been bored.

    Several times on both ankles, and it hurst like heck. For me, it was always playing SPORT that I got injured the most! Volleyball is a killer on ankles, a very common injury :(
    Now I have retired from playing, never had an issue with my ankles.

    always lived by the RICE method of recouperation

    yes but ive found out its fractured now(got a pot on,see my last post) so its worth getting it looked at, but an ice pack and elevation should do the trick and watch out for it going over again
