Ankle sprain: Normal healing of a sprained ankle takes several weeks (on average). If its a chronically sprained ankle with constant pain and instability, it will take longer than a "normal" sprain. Yes, a sprain can get worse. Usually 3-4 weeks of rest, icing, antiinflammatory meds (like advil (ibuprofen) or motrin), bracing or compressing wraps, with or without physical therapy should be normal. Hope that helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It's : It's impossible to tell whether you have a sprain or a fracture without an x-ray, so yes, you'll need to see someone to have it evaluated and x-rayed. In the meantime, i would not apply any heat, as heat will increase the swelling. Ice is ok, but now at 3 days later, it's doubtful ice will help much. Also, i was lay off the ibuprofen. If it is fractured, Ibuprofen delays and hinders fracture healing. Take tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain, but go see a doctor, either a podiatrist or orthopedic surgeon. Feel better. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

To remove all doubt if the temperature does not start stabilizing, and soon, you need to be re-evaluated. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
