a soldiers ankle pain

Dr. My husband recently returned from Iraq, (5 months ago)While returning from a mission, he stepped into a small hole. This caused him to turn and twist his ankle.
Unfortunately, vetrans hospital, doesn’t make a of point to find out why, his ankle is killing him. They performed x rays, but tells him they can’t find anything broken……
What if it is muscle.
I feel it is awful that they have not diagnosed his problem.
Unforutnately, he complains of his ankle pain….Can You Help?
Thank You, Cindy

    what he needs is a MRI. This can show alot more than a X-ray. Depending on the insurance you have, (Tricare?) you may need a referral to either a podiatrist or orthopedist. If there is a base near you, they might require you to be seen there.Call your insurance and find out what he needs to do to get help.
