Severe ankle pain, massive swelling and bruising. Can't move ankle. Inconclusive mri. What does this mean?

Severe ankle pain, massive swelling and bruising. Can't move ankle. Inconclusive mri. What does this mean?

Severe sprain: This sounds like a third degree (possibly second degree) sprain involving teating of the supporting ligament of the ankle and pooling of blood either into the musvle or the ankle joint itself. Obtain immediate orthopedic evaluation. Advise immediate rest, ice, compression and elevation, aircast splint and er if symtoms worsen. Ok to use advol or aleve (naproxen) for pain and swelling.

Swelling (Definition)

Swelling is the enlargement of organs, skin, or other body parts. It is caused by a buildup of fluid in the tissues. The extra fluid can lead to a rapid increase in weight over a short period of time (days to weeks). Swelling can occur all over the body (generalized) or only in one part ...Read more

Depends: Numbness can be caused fro swelling Crush injuries are always tough. If it doesn't improve or gets worse over the next 2-3 days, have it checked for any fractures. Use ice, rest and NSAIDS.

7 days ago sprained ankle. Still severe pain, bruising & swelling. Keep it iced and elevated. What's the next move. Told 1 dr it's broke 2 said no.?

7 days ago sprained ankle. Still severe pain, bruising & swelling. Keep it iced and elevated. What's the next move. Told 1 dr it's broke 2 said no.?

I would not: Walk on it if possible.... (I.e crutches). Fractures are usually evident on xrays or MRI if a stress fracture. It sucks when you get differing opinoins as your hoping to be given expert advice and you yourself are not expected to be able to read an xray or MRI.... So sorry about that. How different is the treatment plan between the two? Since your in pain, err on the side of caution..

I have minor ankle pain which does not increase with exercise but I have had it for two months. There is no swelling or bruising. What should I do?

I have minor ankle pain which does not increase with exercise but I have had it for two months. There is no swelling or bruising. What should I do?

Ankle pain: There are many structures in the ankle. There are several ligaments and a cartilage covered bone called the Talus which acts as a "ball bearing" between the foot and leg which can get injured. If your pain is two months in duration, it's time to get an X-ray/MRI.

Ankle pain on outer side of right. I was at MORP last night and when I was dancing I rolled sideways on it. Mild bruising and swelling. Pain when walk.

Be examined: If you have stopped growing, this is most likely a ligamentous injury. This is managed with elevation, cold packs every 2 hours, limited activity and NSAIDs. See your doctor if you are not improving or there is any concern for a fracture. All the best.

Ankle pain in right ankle started Friday. No bruising or swelling. Pain was already subsiding by Sunday. Somebody said it could be a blood clot.

Ankle pain in right ankle started Friday. No bruising or swelling. Pain was already subsiding by Sunday. Somebody said it could be a blood clot.

Small chance...: As you describe your symptoms, it sounds more like a strain or minor sprain in the ankle. The suspicion of a clot seems very low, but cannot be ruled out 100% without a closer evaluation. As the ankle pain subsides, it will be interesting to see if any residual bruising begins to show.

Rolled ankle during basketball - no ankle pain- but immediate pain around base of fifth metatarsal. No swelling/bruising but hurts to bear weight.

Rolled ankle during basketball - no ankle pain- but immediate pain around base of fifth metatarsal. No swelling/bruising but hurts to bear weight.

5th met base: The peroneal tendon attaches to the 5th met base area. In some severe ankle sprain cases the tendon can pull hard enough to fracture the bone- adulation fracture. Should have an X-ray performed on your foot to confirm if broken or not. Otherwise it's treated like an ankle sprain and you need a brace. Go see your local podiatrist or foot and ankle dr

Knee and top of ankle pain, swelling, right leg. No injury. Began at end of strep. Pain flares when walking and in morning unexplained bruising/bumps?

See a doctor: These symptoms deserve a detailed evaluation. Without further information and the ability to examine you would not venture a guess, but would definitely see a good clinician. Hope this all works out well.

Extremely painful ankle, but no swelling and almost no bruising. Cant bear much weight and has been like this for over 24 hours. What is it?

Gout likely: It could be acute gout. Of course a known injury like a sprain is more common. In that case you would have a history of injury. There are several Less common causes. I family practitioner will be able to make a diagnosis and recommend treatment.

Ankles swelling then swelling went down and bruising appeared on both ankles?

Ankles swelling then swelling went down and bruising appeared on both ankles?

Post skin Trauma: This sure sounds normal and expected. I do not know what question you are asking given the way your question is written, but any skin trauma, including swelling, can lead to bruising.

I have ankle swelling and ankle pain. I did this playing soccer

I have ankle swelling and ankle pain. I did this playing soccer

Ankle swelling: And pain is a very common injury in those who play soccer. Frequently the supporting ankle ligaments are stretched, even injured, with rapid turns and pivots while running....let alone kicking. Elevate your ankle and apply ice (a bag of frozen peas works well) for 15 minutes 3 times a day. Brace for support. Avoid playing if painful. See Doc/Sports Med if persists 5-7 days. Stay well:)

There is pain in my ankle but no swelling or bruising. What could it be?

Ankle pain: Different types of arthritis, sprains/strains, bone tumors could all cause ankle pain minus the swelling or bruising. I would recommend evaluation by a podiatrist or foot/ankle orthopedic surgeon.
