    Sprained ankle might be more?

    I tripped down two stairs in front of a museum while I was on vacation and sprained my ankle on Sept 21. The ankle sprain is healing and much of my bruising is green or yellow (healing, yay). But there's a weird bump on my heel, sort of where the Achilles tendon meets the heel bone. I can walk almost normally, but if I walk around too much there's pain at the end of the day - regardless of pain at night it doesn't hurt in the morning. Today the pain is sharper and not how it's felt before, though the pain has never exceeded about 3/10.

    I've been elevating my foot, icing regularly, and taking ibuprofen. I have also been using arnica, which has been helping the bruising to heal I think.

    I'm concerned maybe there's a fracture or serious tendon injury, but have no insurance and cannot afford to get this looked at. I have mostly ruled out a fracture seeing as the bruising is minimal and I can press on the bump without any pain.

    I was hoping to get some advice.

    Can someone tell me what image uploader this site accepts?
