My ankles give out on me! Does this happen to you?

When I was about seven years old I was running or jumping and turned my ankle. After that, it hurt for a period of months. Ever since then, they give out on me constantly. Did this ever happen to you?

  • I sprained my ankle when I was 13 or so, and ever since then it give out on me all the time. If I step wrong I'm on the ground looking dumb.

  • I've sprained the same right ankle over and over again just from walking no lie. It twist on me sometimes. I never knew why just wrapped it elevated it put some ice on it and once the pain and swelling was gone I went back to my normal life UNTIL it happens again. Same leg now my knee is screwed up and gives out on me. Cyst on my knee.
