    Gymnastics injury thanks in advance save me? Here's my story. I'm 16 years old. I've been doing gymnastics for 16 years. This school year I played field hockey, that's where this all started. I would get sharp pain in my knee and my veins would sweel and my leg would shake and get weak. It would come and go. It happens occasionally in gymnastics. I do about 13 hours a week and competed all around in a meet on Saturday. All of a sudden after bars, my 3rd event, my ankle started killing. I still competed and since then have done 7 hours of gymnastics. I've iced it but, it's gradually getting worse. It went from my ankle down to my toes and up to my knee, expeiriencing my old problem. It's not really swollen but, my veins pop out. I still have been doing things and with my outdoor school am constantly on it. I just need to know what's wrong? It's preventing me to do things and I need to know what it is, how to treat it and if I need to stop physical activty? and is it anything? :p I need to be diagnose online to fix this myself and still compete.

    This sounds like a number of things. The protruding veins sounds like blockage in an artery, this could be serious and is not something that you can fix yourself. Does your family have a history of diabetes or clotting? Diabetes can manifest itself in young teens if you have a family history of it. This will cause swelling of your limbs and a tingling feeling, another sign of diabetes is dizziness. If your family has a history of clotting it can also show up in young children and teens. Clotting in a major vein in your leg can cause your veins to swell because the blood is not traveling through your veins fast enough, this can also cause a tingling sensation and swelling. I do not know all of your symptoms or what your veins look like exactly, but these are my best guesses from my studies. I would suggest going to get medical advice from a family physician. If you put it off and it is serious, then you are at risk of never coming back from it. If a disease or condition is found and treated in time, you will be fine to continue with your training. I hope this helps. Good luck. :)

    Well diabetes can be controlled. A lot of athletes have diabetes. I have chronic asthma and so I have to have about 3-4 shots every year. I was afraid of needles until I realized that without them, I could die. Now I just take a deep breath and close my eyes. I do believe that if it has not come out yet, they are working on an insulin that you inhale. This will be a cartridge that will look like an inhaler. This way, you don't have to deal with needles. But I suggest that you go in and get an official diagnosis. I am only a medical student, so I do not know everything.
