Physician evaluation: When you a have a sprain, ligaments have been partially torn and the surrounding muscles remain weak and unbalanced, leading to continued ankle instability. Other reasons for continued pain and swelling include an undetected fracture, bone bruising or tendon tearing. Consider seeing a doctor for an x-ray and exam. Numbness is often from minor injury or swelling to the surrounding nerves. ...Read more

Sprain (Definition)

A sprain is a medical term that describes an injury to soft tissue structures in the area. Common examples are a lumbar sprain, in which you might injure muscles in your back; or an ankle sprain in which you could injure ligaments about the ankle.

Is it normal to have pain in a band on top of foot just below toes and numbness, swelling in two little toes after sprained ankle?

Is it normal to have pain in a band on top of foot just below toes and numbness, swelling in two little toes after sprained ankle?

YES: Depending upon the severity of the sprain, swelling can extend to the foot. My question to you-without seeing a doctor, how can you be sure it's "just a sprain." Most ankle sprains, I think, are undertreated resulting in lingering problems. ...Read more

2 weeks after an ankle sprain. I can stand on toes of that foot and swelling is down to 20%, but stinging pain when I touch the skin in front of talus?

2 weeks after an ankle sprain. I can stand on toes of that foot and swelling is down to 20%, but stinging pain when I touch the skin in front of talus?

Low ankle sprain: It sounds like you are recovering from a low ankle sprain. The pain you experience in the front of the ankle is most likely your anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL) which is still healing. It can take weeks-months to fully recover from ankle sprains depending on the severity of the injury. Rest, ice, compression and elevation is the best nonoperative treatment for this. ...Read more

Mild ankle sprain 10 days ago, I have fully mobility and no swelling but my ankle still hurts when toes pointed down and standing on tippy toes? Why?

Have it evaluated.: Pain may last a long time following a foot or ankle injury. An x-ray can show if there is an underlying fracture. You may have a soft tissue injury if it is just a sprain and may have damaged the muscle, tendon, or ligaments in the area. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment. ...Read more

11weeks after an ankle sprain been going to pt and for the past 2 weeks I've been having numbness in my foot I feel it the most when laying down. What is the possible cause?

11weeks after an ankle sprain been going to pt and for the past 2 weeks I've been having numbness in my foot I feel it the most when laying down. What is the possible cause?

Scarring on nerve: The fact that there is numbness described leads me to believe that there is nerve compressed. After 11 weeks from an ankle sprain, pain should have subsided unless as part of the healing ligament, scar tissue formed and adhesions may have developed and are now compressing the adjacent nerve. Get your ankle examined properly. An mri/ct would probably be best to examine the soft tissue. ...Read more

Ankle sprain caused severe swelling to foot, what to do?

P.R.I.C.E.: After an acute ankle sprain the rule is price. Protection, rest, ice, compression and elevation. This will help to reduce the swelling, but you have to be proactive and consistent.
Stay off the ankle, and reduce activity which causes the ligaments to 'stretch' out. You want to protect the structures, and keep the ice on through the first week. Physical therapy can help a great deal as well. ...Read more

I was just diagnosed with a sprained ankle (right foot) now I have large purple blotches on my right foot on both sides under the ankle. What's wrong?

It is bruising: The purple blotching you describe sounds like bruising. You may have [just] sprained your ankle, but where pain, swelling and bruising is present, you want to make sure you do not have a more serious injury such as a dislocation or fracture. The way to do this is with x-rays. ...Read more

Ankle sprain, pain gets worse at night when I lie down and I always wake up in the night after I've moved my foot in an awkward position, help please?

Keep free & elevate: Staying in a position for a prolonged period can cause a sprained ankle to feel stiff and aggravate pain. You can try keeping the ankle out from under the covers so it's not "restricted" or could try elevating it up on a couple pillows while sleeping - elevation also helps with relieving swelling and overall pain. ...Read more
