Day 3: Weird Bruise Watch


Is it possible I actually sprained both my ankles? Same bruising is on the other foot… yesterday the feet/ankles were not happy. Grrrrr…

  1. Tendonitis? I have it in my left ankle. All you can do is rest and ICE ICE ICE. The pain should subside though. I don’t know how long you have been en pointe, but when my shoes finally “died” (so to speak) the lack of the support in the shank put a lot of stress on the top of my foot. No bruising, but very painful. If I were you, I would either talk to your instructor and see if it is the shoe, the elastic or something else. Or, try your local dance store. I hope this helps! 🙂

    • I talked to her last night about it and the placement of the bruising isn’t consistent with bruising, that she has experienced (20 plus years), with pointe… Icing is commencing. I’m hopeful it is a fluke… time will tell… thanks!
