Hi Everyone, Early December during a wrestling tournament I went over on my ankle and paint shot up the outside of my lower leg. There was no "pop", just a lot of point tenderness about 4 inches up from my ankle joint. Followed the standard RICE... The next day I had a small lump at the spot, maybe the size of a quarter. My coaches said that I had a muscle tear and to rest. I rested 8 weeks (Christmas break helped) and returned to practice. Full strength, full range of motion, everything was fine. At the end of the first practice my ankle was a little bit sore, maybe a 1 on 10. During my second practice someone hit that spot on the outside of my leg where I had the bump before. The pain was incredible, it lasted all that night but almost totally gone the next day. I rest a week or so and all of the symptoms go away. I have gone back to practice a couple of times and every time I get hit all the symptoms and pain come back like the first day but everything seems fine after a couple of days. There is no pain running, jumping, planting... Everything is fine but that one spot. Very frustrated... Any ideas? Thanks

Are you doing any specific stretching or exercise for that part of your leg? Have you had it evaluated by a competent health professional?
