I broke my rt. ankle in Jan. 09....non-displaced fracture, no surgery....was in a boot then aircast, out of work for 4 months....and went to physical therapy. My problem is, to this day, my ankle is still swollen (mostly on the side and through the top - but occasionally on both sides), I limp every morning - and periodically throughout the day, still have pain (both sharp and dull), my foot cramps up - like a charlie horse, and I feel like I need to crack it, but it's painful. Any advice? What is the problem?

Pls help!
