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.

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

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.. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
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 ...Read more

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:) ...Read more

Sprainankle 4yrs ago, ive had chronic ankle pain, weakness, instability, swelling for 4yrs. I've had help-doesnt get better. Doctor says give time. Thanks!
Instability: It is unlikely that if you have already given it 4 years and it is still causing problems that it will get better at this point by simply giving it more time. It is likely that you tore a ligament or ligaments in your ankle that just never healed. Choice would be either to live with it with it without some form of orthotic or consider a surgical opinion. ...Read more
