hello, I have had a problem since I was very young, around 12 years old if I can remember. It’s a very long story and if I can just get any kind of help or where to go I would be so thankful. I can’t quite remember though if it started after I sprained or fractured my ankle. I was a gymnastics for a long time and very active. I did a trick on the grass tumbling and I hurt my ankle. It popped and it became swollen and I was unable to bend it forward very much. I stayed off of it for a few weeks and was careful because I thought that it was probably just stprained. I dreaded going to the doctor so I didn’t get a cast or anything. I waited like a month before returnig to gymnastics and took it easier and iced it hoping it would heal on its own. After that maybe before I noticed that my hips became crooked. It pops in and out and it is very inflexible. One side is higher than the other and the right side seems to rotate in. My legs are also noticeable uneven. The doctor said 2 cm which feels like a lot when I’m standing and not only does that bother me but also my hips and then my ankles, one of them is probated and the other supinated. The one I hurt when I was younger the right one, still has pain when I bend it past a certain angle forward. The 2 cm difference seems to be In my lower leg, the shin bone. I wore a heel lift which the physical therapist gave me when I was going there. It was pretty small like 1/4 in. And he had me doing a few exercises that didn’t seem to chang anything at all. On top of everything my back also hurts most days. My lower back. It is so frustrating, because It seems like I can’t do anything to fix it and I just want some type of surgery or something to fix my hips/legs to make me feel not uncomfortable all of the time. I went to the doctor recently (I am 21 now) just hoping a new one would be able to give me information on what to do. He said nothing to help me and didn’t seem to care one bit. He hardly looked at me st all. He said try insoles which is ridiculous. Please help - thank you, Faith.

Hello there On my left side either my glande or tonsil (not sure which) is swallen. Looks like a flesh coloured lump peeping out. My right side is fine. It doesn t have puss or infection. About a month ago I had a very sore throat on that side and all of the left side of my tongue felt cracked an ulcerated. I had no other symptoms, no fever or anything. It just felt cracked and very sore. Since then I seem to have been left with this swollen gland. I no longer have pain but can feel it there. Is this anything I should be worried about? I ve never had tonsilitis in my life. Could this be my tonsil or lymph gland? Thanks Katy
