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. ...Read more

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

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. ...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.

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.

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

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. ...Read more
