    Please help with my grade 2 sprained ankle

    I know theres only so much anyone can do over the internet, but this is the only hope I have.

    17 days ago I tripped and sprained my ankle pretty badly. It's a grade 2. I went to urgent care and they gave me a walking boot and told me to use it for two weeks. The swelling finally went down enough and some of the bruises were gone so I gave walking a shot this morning. No pain and that was surprising.

    I guess I put too much weight on it because it swelled up again and now my foot is freezing cold. I've got a compression sock and a brace on it since I'm only sitting down but my foot is freezing and my toes are purple.

    With the covid-19 thing going on I really don't want to go to the doctor. The office will be full of sick people and I don't want to be there unless I need to be since I was laid off and don't have health insurance. Also, a lot of places are closed because of covid-19 so I can really only go to urgent care or the ER.

    I've never had a sprain that didn't heal itself overnight so I don't know what to think about this. Is any of this normal? Should I be doing something differently?
