Varies: It is not uncommon for an athlete to sustain a soft tissue injury to the ankle and still have some discomfort two days later. On the other hand, certainly can not say over the internet that you have not sustained a more serious injury. Don't hesitate to be seen and thoroughly evaluated.

IBU/ice/stay off it: This is totally norm and I have done this myself. I would take ibuprofen for pain, ice for swelling and I would stay off the ankle as much as possible. If issue increase I would see my local MD at that point. No worries Connect with my Virtual Practice on Healthtap for any dental questions with my special keycode: DFWMCQ!
