Ankle kicking out oddly

In the last 3 days, my left ankle has made an odd outward movement (maybe 4 times...not consistent) when I've stepped off of it while walking. It's a new deal but intermmitent.
Should I be scared? Pain level has been peaked in last 13 days. Think I may have lifted more than a gallon of milk...but not much more!

I'm going to treat it by more bedrest unless someone with more experience here tells me that I should get it checked out. Checking it out would mean yet ANOTHER MRI...I'm still paying on the last two. Last one was 3/06/09. Am wearing (hard) cervical collar because neck muscles really having hard time keeping my head upright and it relieves quite a bit of pain. Neck muscles being pushed to the extreme without collar.



  • How long have you been wearing your collar for?Neck muscles get very weak the longer you wear it.Is this because you surgeon has told you to wear it? I also have sort of the same thing happening to me.My whole leg will turn in when i walk and my foot turns in and will drop. I was told that its caused my intermittant muscle weakness from pressure on a nerve. Maybe just keep your doctor up to speed,let him know your pain is worse and whats happening with your foot.He may want to see you.
  • You've both given me food for thought.
