Can you walk on it?: See your doctor or nurse if:
●You cannot put weight on the leg with the injured ankle
●Your ankle looks deformed or crooked
●Your ankle is unstable (for example, it gives out while you are climbing stairs)
It's also best to see a doctor or nurse if you are not sure how serious the injury is.
