One Swollen Leg And Ankle
Foot is blue leg is cold up to the knee cap pin and needles in my foot i can see spiderweb veins in leg foot and calf swollen. Sprained one month ago?
Get it checked ASAP.: Two possibilities come to mind. If you have a blood clot in your calf, your leg could look like that. Have it checked out immediately, because blood clots can go to the lungs. If it is not a blood clot, it could be CRPS (complex regional pain syndrome). This also needs to be seen soon as it can turn into a major pain problem. ...Read more
Sprained my ankle a week ago. Both the foot and ankle are swollen, pained, and bruised. I can't move my toes and there are spasms in my thigh. Normal?
Not norm but typical: Bruising implies ligament tearing and/or a fracture. Gravity often allows for bruising and swelling to track down to the foot. The swelling and pain may inhibit joint and tendon movement, thus inhibiting the toe movement. Thigh spams can result from overcompensation of these muscles. Rest, ice, compression and elevation. See a physician for a possible x-ray, more definitive diagnosis and treatment ...Read more

Sprained ankle on 11-13 swelling not going down foot cold and pale pain in calf and thigh. On crutches and off foot entirely. Pain unbearable at times?
See a specialist: You don't mention having it properly examined. In addition to a full examination, proper diagnostic testing including X-rays and perhaps an MRI will be useful.

Could be, but...: You should have this looked at asap. You need to make sure this is not a developing infection.

Basic lab work can rule out a significant problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Went over on ankle, got swollen toe and ball of toe, numbness, sore ankle. Pain when walking. What could this be?

Why the toe would be swollen I am not sure, but an xray would be in order for a swollen toe. "Ball of toe" = not sure what you mean by this.) ...Read more

Blood vessels.: There is a host of reasons why your feet get red and the veins bulge after walking.

Medications, blood vessel health, capillary return are just a few possibilities. You would be best served to have a thorough evaluation before any action is taken. ...Read more

Consider CRPS: Dear Amanda, Your symptoms are not typical of normal sprain healing.
