An injury at work last October of 2007 that was diagnosed as a left ankle sprain now has me like a cripple. After physical therapy, the pain continued, although I needed to get back to my job in nursing. This injury has resulted in my being out of work since April of 2008 and in a cast for eight weeks. I continue to be in pain almost every day. No inflammatory medications have been prescribed to me for pain, but I started physical therapy again. The physical therapy person seems to be more concerned than my doctor, and I should not be in this much pain after all this time. I am about to approach a second opinion from another doctor.
