    Dunno, Ive twisted it seriously more than a few times and been fine, it's the two times Ive folded it past 90 degrees is when it seems to do this painful thing. :p I dont have weak ankles, my two are pretty legit twists, and I could still ride on it today, I think this one just looks a lot more dramatic than it really is.

    They are ugly, for some reason I have huge nasty toes, with a side-order of in-grown toe nails in the family. At least I keep 'em clean.

    Bill, yeah, Im taking care of it, Ive been here before and had it healed properly in less than 4 weeks or so, and this one is a lighter injury anyway.

    Yes, hair runs in my fam Dan, I guess I prefer it distributed evenly across my body instead of one mop on my head. :D

    And I was wrong, this isnt the same foot I injured at Texarkana, that was my right foot:

    I guess Ive just evened it out, now both will be uber-strong after healing properly. :sonic:

    I feel your pain. Last september i rolled my ankle really bad. I didn't take care of it for a few days unfortunately. Mine at its peak didn't look as swollen as yours, but it was much more purple throughout my foot. My ankle is still messed up, aggravated it on the 2 rides i've been on. :?
    RICE if you didn't already know, rest/ice/compresion/elevation
    HARM-heat/alchohol/running/i can't remember :rolleyes:

    I rolled mine warming up on a big group ride i drove 6 hrs to do. Was designated camera guy for the ride. No ice or bandage I figured i would get drunk before the drive home, didn't know it was bad for you. :ugh:
    Then i walked to class, went to work, went to doctor, and then finally i iced it that evening.

    TIE YOUR SHOES PROPERLY :cool:

    dude im feelin for ya.. ive done my left ankle in atleast 6 times now.. its one bad ass pain i tell ya. Just dont go n re injure ure self riding it too soon after its healed cos you'll end up doing it again. Ive had 4 months of nothing touch wood but its so much stiffer than my right ankle.

    Your ankle will continue to be weak as hell and will be susceptible to re-injury forever unless you do physical therapy to rebuild/re-strengthen the ligaments. After the first sprain, your chance for re-injury goes up dramatically..
