Yes: Sprains are commonly dismissed as being no big deal. A sprain is a tear of the ligaments around your joints and it can be incredibly painful and cause swelling for 3 or more months.

I sprained my ankle years ago. Since, I have had a bump under my ankle on the inside that is hard and sensitive to pressure. Why?

I sprained my ankle years ago. Since, I have had a bump under my ankle on the inside that is hard and sensitive to pressure. Why?

Trauma/sprains: Ankle sprains may result in a number of long-term problems. Sometimes, the ligaments will pull off a piece of bone (avulsion fracture) when you are injured, and this may result in long-term sensitivity or pain. Alternatively, you may have ruptured the ligaments around your ankle. If the problem is bothering you, I would recommend seeing a local Podiatrist to have x-rays and further evaluation

Get CT: Sometimes a 'simple' ankle sprain is really a bone evulsion at this location and can continue to heard. A simple sprain should be resolved in 6-8 weeks max. Need evaluation with at least x-rays, but if there is any question, you need a ct or MRI based on examination and history.

Suggest: You get an x-ray to rule out fracture and possible MRI to see how much soft tissue damage was done to ligaments. The hard bump you mention is a concern as well. Get it checked asap.

I got high ankle sprain, 4 weeks ago. Booted. My heel looks crooked big bump, swollen and brusing on opposite of ankle. More painfull. Stepping hurts.

More than a sprain: Who diagnosed the high ankle sprain? A bump on the heel not usually associated with high ankle sprain. Pain and deformity in the back of the ankle suggests an achilles injury or even heel bone fracture. A true high ankle sprain should always be evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon because sometimes they need surgery if the ligaments between the tibia and fibula are completely torn.

I have had my right leg sprained a month ago and now Iam able to walk but I still got a bump on outer angle l ankle. If I walk it is getting more red?

Residual swelling: Sometimes because of the soft tissue trauma there is residual swelling left over (the damaged tissues separate easier & retain fluid).Thus you may require additional wrapping &/or leg elevation for resolution of this edema. I would recommend you see a Podiatrist or Sports Medicine MD. They may recommend additional Physical Therapy for ankle proprioception exercising & edema massage. Keep us posted.

Can I play soccer I sprained my ankle 2 months ago there is a hard bump on my ankle it hurts a bit to run can I play or do I have to wait and how long?

Can I play soccer I sprained my ankle 2 months ago there is a hard bump on my ankle it hurts a bit to run can I play or do I have to wait and how long?

Not ready: With a a simple ankle sprain most non professional soccer players ca return in 2-8 weeks. When you can run, cut and jump without ok pain or a sense of weakness. Taping or ankle bracing may be required till strength to protect further sprains has occurred. The "hard lump...Hurts" is concerning. I would get it checked out before I resumed play.

Sprained my ankle 6 weeks ago it still hurts a lot to run and kick a soccer ball it also hurts to walk there is also a bump+swelling what to do plez?

Time: It may take more time to heal, meaning more rest may be needed, however swelling is not normal and may indicate further pathology in your ankle. You may need advanced imaging to detect any joint damage. For now, try doing activities with a brace. Hope that helps.

Scar tissue: There may be a scar tissue from your sprained ankle if not properly immobilized or treated. Glad to hear there isn't a broken bone or fracture, but scar tissue from an ankle sprain can have residual swelling and pain. You may need further treatment and advanced imaging (MRI) to determine other possible pathologies present. Hope this helps, best of luck!

Many possibilities: R.I.C.E. Rest, ice, compression, elevation. Immobilization with a splint or brace may be of benefit in the initial phase of recovery. Oral anti-inflammatory medication may help with the pain and swelling. Once improved, mobilization and physical therapy can help restore strength and function. Healing times may vary.

Possible hyperextension cause of toe sprain july 1st. Now experiencing toe pain, red bump, inner ankle pain, limited toe movement, stretched skin?

Possible hyperextension cause of toe sprain july 1st. Now experiencing toe pain, red bump, inner ankle pain, limited toe movement, stretched skin?

Get a definitive dx: I agree with dr. Michalski. Other things that should be considered are medial ankle sprain with a plantar plate injury or post-traumatic arthritis of the MTP joint. See a orthopaedic foot and ankle surgeon for a definitive diagnosis. One in your area can be found at www. Aofas. Org.
