Almost a week later, my ankle doesn't look or feel much better. I will probably spend the rest of day laying on the sofa.
holy bananas that looks owwwy! you gotta be careful about limbs falling asleep! I was up a telephone pole when I was in the Army, and went to move to the other side (circling the pole), when I put full weight on my left leg, I couldn't feel it as it had gone to sleep, I bounced a little, ASSumed the gaff was in, and stepped down, allllllll the way down, almost 50 feet down
flat feet can throw you into a knock kneed position (eventually) and knock your hips out of alignment, it also puts undue stress on your knees
