Re: Broken ankle maybe?
To complicate things I actually sprained both ankles at the same time. The bottom step broke on our stairs and I went down on the right ankle first, twisted that really bad, then landed on and twisted the left one. I was in excruciating pain, I was barely able to walk at first, not putting any weight on the right one at first. I used the aircast for awhile. Stabilizing it felt better. Then I started wrapping it instead. So it's not been immobile. I've treated this like a typical sprain, when clearly it was not.
The right foot was dark purple all over the ankle inside and out and the toes. It was swollen bad for about a week probably. The main area of pain on that one is a small spot on the inner of the right ankle. It does kinda feel like maybe a bone was broke. I can narow the pain to one small spot, not like when I have sprained them and the whole ankle area felt sore. Because I have favored the left one so much, that one has also not heeled. The outside of that ankle is still sore. That one feels like the typical sprain pain that I have had in the past, but just isn't healing.
I'm definitely planning to go to the doctors. It's a matter of costs at this point. But I will be going soon. I'm sure I've made things worse by not going before now. Figures, the last two times I sprained my ankles I went to the ER right off and wasted a lot of money each time to find out there were no brakes. This time I don't go and I clearly should have.
