First, I twisted my ankle (right) many, many weeks ago at Oak Creek with Alice and Sarah. You may remember -- I've whined about it here before. It hurt for a minute, then it felt all kinds of better, then I drove home and it was excruciatingly painful and I feared for my accelerating/braking abilities on the curvy mountain roads; then I got home and couldn't put any pressure on it, so I hopped around on the other foot (left) until my husband ordered me to bed and called everyone we know looking for crutches to borrow; then I took 3 ibuprofins (can that be pluralized?) and fell asleep and it was completely healed the next morning, and everyone at church was all, "Needed crutches, did you? Huh."
Well. Soon thereafter my other ankle (left) began to hurt, but I have no idea how or when I could have injured it. It has had a dull, annoying soreness for about 6 weeks or so. It hurts especially at night, all night long and in the morning, and then I will walk it out and it doesn't hurt anymore. I googled the symptoms and it seems to me I have gout, but my husband laughs at me and says I don't drink nearly enough red wine or eat enough red meat or weigh enough to have gout, but I'm not so sure. Anyway, the pain has persisted, yesterday it was especially bad all day long and I limped on my afternoon walk up the Lindon hills. Tonight? Doesn't hurt, not even a little bit, and that is the first time in a really long time. So I'm all healed, right?
I am not even kidding, but my right ankle is starting to hurt again tonight. This is getting ridiculous.
