I started working out this past July, first with Cycling and gradually moving to running more. Recently I have had Knee problems, that were solved by wrapping and new shoes, shoes blistering the back of my heel, fixed by new socks, and now very bad ankle pain. I use exercise as my health plan as I don't have insurance right now and can't see a doctor about this.
My Question: What can I do to help my ankle feel better on my own? Do I wrap, ice, rest, or do I need new equipment again?
I'm really learning as I go and teaching my family, this injury seems out of my scope to correct. I would appriciate anyone's experience with ankle injuries or training knowledge in this area. I know this is an extremely specific question, but I'm desperate to fix this problem. I hate not being able to get out, now that I've developed this habit.
