Swelling Above Ankle Bone
Hi I rolled my ankle yesterday and there is swelling the size of a golf ball around my ankle bone but the pain goes up to my calf from my ankle?
Ankle Sprain: It sounds like an ankle sprain from the excessive inversion. Sometimes with high grade ankle sprains a fracture of the fibular bone could be present. Might want to rule out this possibility getting xray of ankle and proximal tibia/fibula. The other thing to bear in mind is that the ligament that stabilize the ankle could have also been teared. So if therapy and meds don't help get an MRI. ...Read more

Torn ligaments too??: A chip of bone in an ankle is often a sign that a ligament is injured too as that chip can be broken off when the ligament is over stretched from a sprain injury. Also, on the inside of the ankle is a major tendon that can be torn. Ankle supports, physical therapy may be needed as well as an MRI. A patient can take 4 to 12 weeks to return to exercise activities. ...Read more

Typically minimal swelling or bruising. ...Read more
I sprained my ankle SAT. It swelled up on top of foot & in front of ankle bone. I RICEd it and no more swell. When I walk it makes/feel big pop?
Popping with sprain: One of the hardest things to do after an ankle sprain is to eliminate the swelling. Deep swelling can linger for an average 4 months post sprain, and this can cause a popping sensation. I like RICE, especially twice daily 15 minute ice packs and once daily contrast bathing. If the popping does cause pain, then definitely see a specialist. ...Read more
