    12 months ago getting off a bus I rolled my right foot and leg inwards. I then was put on a crutch and had taping done for 8 months with 1 physio. I got worse that I could not walk with the crutch I had 3 falls. I then had seen 2 different physios who told me I had a stiff ankle and they couldn't move my ankle in the dorsiflex position or even make it go in circles.
    I finally had a MRI which showed no tendon or ligament damage just that I had thick lining n my archilles tendon and a high arch
    Just started to see a massage therapist and after 3 sessions I have a little movement but I can not balance and I can not walk unaided I constantly need help
    I am getting annoyed and frustrated that I still am like this 12 months later
    The massage therapist is releasing all the knots and pain I have in my hips and lower back
    Went and saw a orthopaedic surgeon and he said CRPS but I am not in constant pain everything is stiff
    My doctor wants me to take nerve medication which has a lot of side effects and also to see a pain specialist
    So if anyone can help or suggest anything
    I even bought a walker to see if that helps me to walk but it has made me worse and I tried to use walking sticks but cant because I lose my balance

    If it is CRPS, then see the pain specialist and take the meds. CRPS is complex and difficult to manage.

    I have been to physical therapy and they dont think it CRPS. The pain is manageable when I take the Gabapentin. The real issue is the redness/burning pain when I stand. And the fact my foot will not naturally allow me to lay it flat on the ground. Thus I walk on side of my foot.
