Sprain Ankle Bruising Swelling
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

Sprained my ankle 9 days ago. Bruising/swelling has almost gone all the way down. Now it's starting to itch, why? Is that normal?
I mildly sprained my ankle (no bruising) and didn't take it seriously for about a month. Now there's no pain, just light swelling. How do I heal it?
Ice ice brace it: For first line treatment, ice, rest and brace it. Antiinflammatory meds can help decrease swelling and pain. It takes 3-4 weeks for ligaments to heal. If it continues to hurt after 1-2 weeks, seeing a physician for standing x-rays and exam in case you may have damaged your ankle more severely than first thought. Hope this helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I sprained my ankle 12 days ago and still have bruising and swelling. I am walking on it but its' still stiff and painful. Is this normal?
Highly variable time: Foot and toe swelling after a significant ankle sprain lingers until the ankle swelling diminishes, since it is in part due simply to the limited outflow capabilities of normal capacity. This is from the "blockage" of outflow and compression of the exiting pathways by the swollen and pressurized tissues around the ankle. Early icing, elevation, and compression will help the ankle swelling. ...Read more
I was told I have a sprained ankle I think it is fractured the swelling is gettin bad and bruising ?
14 mos since a grade 3 sprain in right ankle and still have bruising and slight swelling around top of my ankle, is something still wrong?
THe good news is : You didn't say you had pain. I would advise you to wear some form of compressive anklet to minimize the swelling. Ice it when you can and elevate your feet when at rest. A grade 3 sprain is on the severe side and discoloration is not usual, nor is slight swelling. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I fell today and seemed to sprain my ankle. But there hasn't been any bruising or swelling and I've been icing on and off all day. It hurts to walk.
Swelling is the enlargement of organs, skin, or other body parts. It is caused by a buildup of fluid in the tissues. 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
