Thanks for reading. I have been having pain in my left ankle that on a scale of 1-10 can reach an 8. Its gradual. I will be at work (which involves lots of standing) and slowly it gets worse until at the end of the night I can barely stand on it. I have been experiencing this for about a month now and it is definitely getting worse.

I was discharged from the army due to tearing my acl in my right knee. A buddy of mine says the pain in my ankle is probably from compensating and leaning on the left side.

I dont have insurance and the veterans dept tells me i have to wait about 4 months for paperwork before they will see me. I am debating on going into the er to see someone but I really cant afford it. My question is if I wait for the 4 months to pass will I have significant damage to my ankle? And what could this be thats causing my pain?

thanks in advance
