    Hey all.
    So most of you know I have a genetic mutation in my knees and wrists, which is quite painful, and causes my bones to shift out of place.
    I've always suspected it was in my ankles too, but i have proof today. I fell today, my left ankle just totally gave out, and wen i try to walk on it, its excruciating. I can feel the bones moving, and there is a HUGE bruise on the ankle, which could be from bones tearing at the muscles?
    Great. My life officially sucks. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Have you seen a specialist that deals with this condition? You're right, this situation officially "sucks." I'm thinking you are strong enough to not allow it to control your life. I have a granddaughter who has rheumatoid arthritis/Lupus-- she has markers for both. I know how difficult it is for anyone and especially a young person to deal with chronic pain. [​IMG]

    Sorry to hear that. I know how it is to have a bad ankle. I tore mine up pretty bad and had two surgeries on it. I can be walking along on a flat surface and just step wrong on it and [​IMG] . I haven't went down yet but I've thought I would a time or two.
