Two days ago i sprained/ strained my ankle while exercising. I didn't realize i looked up my symptoms: swelling, mild pain. Is it too late to treat?
Not at all: But your first "step" (sorry) is to get it properly diagnosed. Was it a sprain, a ligament tear or perhaps even a little fracture?

If the pain is very severe, there is always the chance that you have a recurrence (unlikely). Rest and take antinflammatory medication. ...Read more
