Unable To Move Foot Sideways After Ankle Sprain
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.

4 weeks post Grade 2/3 High ankle sprain, still on crutches unable to bear weight,Does this seem normal? already received MRI and did extensive damage

The problem is that in order to heal, the muscle can't be totally immobilized as can a bone (i.e. via cast or fixation). It will take time. ...Read more

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
