Might be a dumb question...when I walk with one crutch I definitely feel pain in my ankle. Maybe a 2/3 on a scale of 1-10. More achy than anything. Only hurts when I actually put weight on it. Stops when I don't. Should my steps be pain free? Any idea how much pain is normal? I know some of you talk about not pushing too hard....but I have no idea what too hard is :-) I feel like the very top of my foot (near ankle) is what seems to bug me the most. Also the sides of my heel.
