Severe Ankle Pain-PLEASE HELP !!!

For the past few weeks, I've been having excruciating pain in my ankle. Whenever I try to elevate my foot it gets worse. Waking up in the morning I can barely walk on my right foot due to ankle/foot pain. Sometimes my ankle bone is swollen. Right now I can't rotate my foot without chronic pain. My foot feels like I'm walking on hard stone. I'm experiencing piercing pain and my foot feels numb.

Is there anything I can do for this? Is anyone experiencing pain in their ankle/foot?

Re: Severe Ankle Pain-PLEASE HELP !!!

hi,
the last time i felt that i had severed ligaments in my ankle. have you seen a doctor? have you stepped off balance recently? or turned fast? you may have injured yourself. with fibro fog it's easy to forget an oops moment. please see a doctor soon if this does not heal in a day or 3.
it's not always fibro. best to be sure.
peace,
blue

Re: Severe Ankle Pain-PLEASE HELP !!!

If it's swelling, get it checked out. Actually, anytime you are having severe pain in an area that you don't usually have pain, get it checked out if it lasts more than a week or so.

For now, elevate when you can. Try ice, heat or one after the other to see what helps.

I'm calling the doctor in the morning. When I woke up this morning the bone by my big toe(the outer part) was sunken in. I was smart to take pictures of it so I can show my doctor. Again my feet were really swollen. The pain is so severe. I tried ice and I'm trying to keep it elevated.
