I sprained my ankle 12 days ago and still have bruising and swelling. I am walking on it but its' still stiff and painful. Is this normal?

Highly variable time. Foot and toe swelling after a significant ankle sprain lingers until the ankle swelling diminishes, since it is in part due simply to the limited outflow capabilities of normal capacity. This is from the "blockage" of outflow and compression of the exiting pathways by the swollen and pressurized tissues around the ankle. Early icing, elevation, and compression will help the ankle swelling.

Get it checked out. While it sounds like you are progressing, you might want to have it looked at. Sometimes bracing, activity restrictions and/or physical therapy are necessary. The persistent swelling might indicate you still have some healing to do. Good luck! Read more...
