I would encourage you to get an MRI and see what's going on with your ligaments. Good luck! ...Read more

Are there any pod: Please see a podiatrist or an orthopedist asap , if pain for weeks with wrapping , you might have a fracture or tear of the ankle ligaments/ tendons that will not improve with just wrapping and continued pressure on the foot and you will need x-rays, possibly an MRI and a cast as well as being off your foot with crutches, possibly surgery.I hope you are not trying to run with a painful ankle. ...Read more

Sprained ankle this evening went to doctors they said its sprained wrapped it in ace bandage n aircast is she to sleep in the air cast?

OK, if necessary.: I would think that the ace bandage should be sufficient as long as the foot(lower leg) is elevated on several pillows. Some times too much compression can be uncomfortable. The decision would be a bit easier if the severity of the sprain was given. ...Read more
