Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.
Gone through your elaborate description. As you had number of repeated injuries involving the same ankle joint, I personally feel that MRI
scan is mandatory to know the current status of the soft tissues and articular surfaces of the ankle joint.
Protect your ankle with a splint
or support and avoid bearing weight on the foot for atleast 3 weeks. Use analgesic
medications as needed along with elastic compression bandage around the swollen area and foot end elevation.
Hope this information is helpful. Good day
