i sprained my ankle when i stepped on someones foot landing. 6 weeks later my ankle is the noticiably swollen but no brusies. i have to be on my feet 6-8 hours a day because of my job. i can walk on the ankle with no pain. i been swimming the past two days with no pain to get some exercise. i can feel a little pain when i rotate my ankle clockwise or counter clockwise. whats wrong with my ankle?
6 weeks after a sprain it's possible your tendons and ligaments are still healing. I agree with JaneWhite. Ice, elevate, see orthopedist or podiatrist. Other things to try include OTC NSAIDs (ibuprofen or Aleve, NOT Tylenol or aspirin) and a compression sock. If you can work with your employer to reduce how much you have to stand at work, that might help.
[QUOTE=Titchou;4802547]You probably pulled some ligaments and they just stay swollen for a awhile. I twisted my ankle about 4 weeks ago and still have one swollen area in front of the ankle bone but no pain.[/QUOTE]
i started swimming with my ankle. i just want the swelling to go down so i can run again. how long is this going to take? i don't have insurance
