Swollen Ankle, no pain.

I was playing Ultimate Frisbee and I was about to jump up to grab the disc, but instead of jumping off my two feet like one would naturally, I jumped of my left foot and right ankle/outside of my foot. (I still caught it none the less)

Now my right ankle swollen and warm to the touch. I have no steady pain, and can bear weight on it without a problem. I was walking immediately after it happened, moving for another hour or so afterwords, and ran 2 miles less than 48 hours later.

Sometimes while walking I will feel a very temporary pain on the outside of my right leg. I figure it is just stretched a little too far during the failed jump when.
I also have consistent pain if I turn my foot out and up.

Any thoughts?

Re: Swollen Ankle, no pain.

You might have pulled a tendon or calf muscle. Put some ice on it, and don't do anything that hurts. And don't run or anything like that.

See a doctor if a week or so passes and it doesn't seem to be healing.
