Sprained ankle playing volleyball 2 weeks ago. No pain but swollen using RICE every day. Should I see a doctor to get an X-Ray?

Stop the ice.: It's about time to stop with the ice. An ankle support, along with judicious use of the ankle might be the way to go now. The swelling is a sign that the ankle is still a bit unstable, a type of cast, supplied by your body.
