Continuing and severe ankle pain with areas of puffiness. I have fractured this same ankle twice, I have no insurance. Taking daily limit of ibuprofen/tylenol. Icing as well. Puffiness not going down/pain is not decreasing. Most recent fracture this past
Try compression. You might try compression and elevation and staying off the ankle for awhile. This may help. You may find a podiatrist or orthopedist working at a free clinic if you cannot afford healthcare. Good luck.
I. I am sorry to hear about your insurance status. Hope that can be worked out with the upcoming healthcare reform. Walmart has some very good laced up ankle braces in the sport section that will give you some good support while you are able to figure out a way to get the needed care. Best wishes.
