- Chronicity 4 - 6 Months
I have had pain in my ankle on and off for over 17 years after breaking my ankle in two places for the second time. Since then, I have horrible jabbing pain at times when I step on it. If the pain lasted very long, I couldn't stand. Cortisone shots help, but they are being needed too close together. I am overweight, which doesn't help. I use OTC ibuprofen and Tylenol. Occasionally, I'll take half of a Demerol.
