Question - Ankle Sprain (8 weeks with continued pain)

by Paul
(Fitchburg, MA, US)

My wife sprained her ankle 8 weeks ago and she is still in lots of pain. It still swells up and keeps her awake at night, yet at times it can feel ok for 2-3 days, then the swelling and pain comes back as if it just happened.

She has been going therapy and the therapist says something is not right and doesn't want to treat her anymore, but her foot Dr. says everything is normal and it could take 5-6 months to heal. My wife is 37 years old...

Any help would be appreciated,
