Just booked a pretty awesome vacation two weeks ago and can't afford to go to the doctor unless I absolutely need to so would like some insight from other who have experienced broken and sprained ankles.
I was playing basketball a week ago and when I jumped I came down on someone else's foot. My ankle rolled outward and I heard a loud popping noise. I couldn't bear wait on it for about 5 min. but then was able to walk out to the car and drive myself home, it didn't hurt bad to walk but I did feel some discomfort and I couldn't push off when stepping with the injured foot.
Within 45 minutes my ankle and entire foot became severely swollen (couldn't fit in any shoe). 30 hours later bruising appeared on the joint on the inside of my ankle, just before my toes, and on the entire outside of my foot where the ankle rolled.
It was two days before I could walk or bear weight. The bruising has reduced by half and the swelling is now only in the area of the ankle. It does not hurt at all even when I walk on it, but it still feels uncomfortable and I cannot push of with the bad foot. It doesn't hurt to touch the bruised areas or anywhere else on the ankle. I can move my toes, but cannot rotate the ankle. I have had this happen once before and it was just a severe sprain?
Any thoughts? I know it can be broken, but just wanted to hear an opinion based on other's previous experiences regarding pain, swelling, bruising, ability to walk and stand, etc.
