Sprained ankle still hurts after 2 months. What can I do?

Sprained ankle still hurts after 2 months. What can I do?

Get re-evaluated: If there was a severe sprain weeks back, it is a soft tissue injury. But you may have had an undetected bone/joint injury as well. The instability created by that kind of injury will cause a change in gait which can also affect the leg. You need to get rechecked. Options for treatment may include conservative means such as bracing or if the injury is severe, surgery may be warranted. ...Read more

Severity of sprain: Depends on the severity and your body's response with swelling. Mild sprains may hurt, but the pain can usually be controlled quickly with icing, compression wraps, rest, antiinflammatory meds and bracing.

Past March high ankle sprain. Hurts after 30sec of running. Hard to lift when running. Hurts horribly when walk on uneven spots. Cracks are painful.

Ankle Sprains: Recovery from an ankle sprain requires RICE therapy (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation). Generally, complete avoidance of sports is recommended until pain free, and gradual return to regular activities as tolerated after that. High ankle sprains take longer to recover (6 weeks or longer), and may require additional interventions such as the use of a walking boot or physical therapy. ...Read more

Sprained ankle 10weeks ago. Dtill hurts to tilt it and pops everytime. Is this normal? Xray just showed lateral swelling.

I have panic attacks and faint every time I'm hurt (sprained ankle, thrown out back, etc) (vasovagal syncope?) 50mgzoloft helped; what else can I do?

I have panic attacks and faint every time I'm hurt (sprained ankle, thrown out back, etc) (vasovagal syncope?) 50mgzoloft helped; what else can I do?

Therapy and Meds: Zoloft (sertraline) is a very appropriate medication to help with panic attacks. Since you have received benefit from 50mg consider talking with your prescribing provider about increasing the dose to get more help, as long as you are tolerating the medication. In addition, it would be helpful to start seeing a therapist to discuss better ways of coping with your anxiety. Monitor your overall health as well. ...Read more

Around the first week of March. 2014, I injured my left ankle. It has been the 4th time doing it. I think it was a high sprain ankle. It still hurts.

Around the first week of March. 2014, I injured my left ankle. It has been the 4th time doing it. I think it was a high sprain ankle. It still hurts.

Need more info: You most likely sprained the ligaments that support your ankle and it has not healed since the first incident. I think it would be wise to see an orthopedic surgeon and have him/her examine you and possibly order an x-ray and suggest some form of rehab. ...Read more

I sprained my ankle and hurt my shin on the same leg. Now everytime I wake up I feel intense pain on my right leg but then it goes away. What's going?

Spasm is still there: If you're having sharp pains in the morning, it depends where you're having those pains that will determine what the problem is. Best if you go see your doctor, so they can do a physical examination of your affected leg. You may still have muscle spasm from the sprained ankle in that leg, or you may have a shin splint, that you might be unaware of. It's worth having this looked into. ...Read more

How long should I wear the compression bandage for? Sprained ankle 2 weeks ago. Still hurts a little not nearly as bad. Only A tiny bit swollen now

How long should I wear the compression bandage for? Sprained ankle 2 weeks ago. Still hurts a little not nearly as bad. Only A tiny bit swollen now

A good Start.: Still a little pain and swelling means that the ankle is still unstable. Two weeks is not enough time for a sprain of any substance. You may have to go 4 to 6 weeks for optimum recovery. Of course this is only guess work since you have not disclosed the severity of the sprain. You might try a little heat to speed the healing up. ...Read more

Sprained ankle 4 weeks ago still swollen and pain that shoots up my leg at times. Hurts to put a little weight on it?

Perhaps: Yu should be suing crutches and not stepping on the ankle which sounds like its not a simple strain but rather a grade two or three. Ice as often as possible. Keep it elevated when possible. Is it wrapped up? If not, sounds like it should until the immediate swelling goes down. Walking on a badly sprained and can lead to chronic lateral ankle instability. ...Read more
