I have only recently started running, using couch to 5k. However I skipped large chunks and went from week 3 to a 6k run about 3 weeks ago. About 5 hours after the run I noticed pain in my ankle. This is been intermittent over the last 3 weeks, though have not run. I have tried using heat, cold and anti inflamatory drugs (ibuprofen)
I tried a run today, and within minutes the pain worsened. I stupidly tried to keep running on it in the hopes I might runthrough it.
I am now in agony - I really want to get back into running but don't know now what to do to sort my ankle out.
The pain is at the back and left hand side of the left foot. I am 19 stone, so am putting a lot of pressure on my ankles, but I am doing this to lose weight. I have come down from 22 stone - I want to lose more and running seems pretty effective.
