    Foot and ankle swelling

    5 days ago I fell heavily onto my right knee. I am 105 kg and this caused a lot of pain. I jarred my knee, wrists, elbow and right shoulder but nothing that wouldn't heal I thought. Bruising started coming out around the knee the next day and it is swollen and sore, as to be expected. But the thing that is worrying me is the right ankle. To the best of my knowledge I didn't twist it in the fall and it is tight from swelling but not sore like a sprained ankle would be. But it is swelling today, a lot, and yesterday bruising came out below the shin/ankle bone. Today that bruising extends around the entire outer edge of my foot, inside and outside. It is black and the foot is quite swollen especially the ankle. The top of my foot may be a little red but no rash. I have a kitten which has scratched me there.
    The only complication is that I am on warfarin.

    I would get it checked incase what is causing the problem is a blood clot from the fall. Even though other parts of the body were injured it could still cause strain on your poor ankle. Its better safe then sorry when it comes to brusing like that.
