On Black Friday, we did a little woods ride. heck, it was mostly pushing the bikes across the icy trail. I fell once, right in the first frozen puddle. No pain, no issues. Heck, I've done that dozens of times. Rode for four hours, went home. No pain, no issues. Sunday I started hurting a little, Monday was worse, and on Tuesday I thought I might have something broken. Could not trace the pain to a specific area, but it appears around my tibula, near where it is just hidden behind the fibula. Okay, went to a doc, and she said that while I can move my ankle, foot, and all, it looks like a broken tib. Three X-rays later, no fracture. Pain still there, so now the doc is going with a "deep tissue bruise". It will buff right out. Wednesday, more pain, more intense. Thursday night so painful it actually brought tears in my eyes. Pain is now lower, right above the ankle. Called the doc today - the original X-rays were only tib/fib, so I asked for ankle X-rays. Three shots later, no fracture. Mystery. Doc is looking at me like I'm faking it. The pain comes and goes, but mostly stays. It gets worse when I relieve pressure or have my leg elevated. Stepping on clutch when driving is hell, but I can stand on my toes without any pain whatsoever. Tapping on the leg does not trigger any pain. I'm confused, and so is the doc. I got crutches today (to see if we could rest the ankle and leg) and have my next appointment next week. So, an injury that is a mystery. The best I can compare the pain to is the time I stepped on a large nail and had it gone through my foot. Pulling the nail out felt like what I'm feeling now, except for way too long.
