Could I have hurt my ankle worse than I thought?
10 days ago I was running and my footing wasn't good my ankle bent inward (so that my food was inbetween my legs and I fell hard.
I thought at the very first that I might have broke it, the next day it was very much in pain if I tried to bend it at all, but if I actually stood up straight and put my foot down straight it wasn't all that painful. After a couple days the pain subsided besides a dull ache and a sharp pain right at the "knuckle" of the ankle.
For a few days I thought it was getting better, but towards the end of the week I started noticing the pain wasn't subsiding in fact it felt like it was getting a bit worse (the dull ache) and it itches... it also feels highly pressurized. I'm also noticing this weekend that it's swollen at the "knuckle"
So after 10 days
-I can walk on it, but it's still swore and actually feels like it's getting more sore than it was at the first part of this week.
-I can't lay it down on the knuckle side without a sharp pain
-It's swollen and it itches at times.
-It feels pressurized.
I would have thought that if I broke or fractured it, I wouldn't be able to walk on it...but if I didn't it should be getting better by now right?
What should I do?
