Physician evaluation: When you a have a sprain, ligaments have been partially torn and the surrounding muscles remain weak and unbalanced, leading to continued ankle instability. Other reasons for continued pain and swelling include an undetected fracture, bone bruising or tendon tearing. Consider seeing a doctor for an x-ray and exam. Numbness is often from minor injury or swelling to the surrounding nerves.
