A member asked:

What symtoms should i have with high ankle sprain grade 2 with crutches full weight bearing for 3 weeks, on week 8 and a half since injury?

Hopefully little: What exactly is crutches full weight bearing? Crutches usually implies non weight bearing....Sprains can take time to heal, i would recommend you wearing an ankle brace when you are weight bearing.

Ankle sprain: Well I am curious about your comment about using crutches and still being full weight bearing.That doesn't make much sense. A grade 2 ankle sprain is not considered a major traumatic injury, in terms of ligament rupture. The normal course would be a 3 to 4 week of non weight bearing with a cam walker.Physical therapy would be started on week two.Symptoms should be some pain and swelling
