.......August 26 th ! I stepped off a step onto someone's sandal and I completely inverted my foot so I landed with all 145 pounds of myself....on my ankle...and it popped. Loud.
Needless to say...I fell like a rock and injured my side but that's the least of my problems.
I couldn't bear too much weight on it at first and it swelled a little.....discoloured a little and I limped a little. But I never went to the doctor. It never looked bad enough .( after reading all these threads on what drives nurses nuts to see at the ER...no way...myself included) I applied RICE and that was that. It kind of went away after 1 week.
I am on my feet up to 10 hours straight when I volunteer and did so since Aug 26 to Sept 9 when I went back to school . Major walker here
Well........a couple of days ago I woke up to it throbbing at night. I actually felt like crying...but you know me....strong like bull *said in best indian voice :chuckle
All yesterday..periodically...it would throb. And its swollen again with some dicolouration. I can and always could actually pinpoint a small place where it hurts like hell and it seems to have moved up my ankle towards my calf.
What do you all think? Get an xray? Maybe its fractured? I've walked on sprains before and I was told not to make such a big deal over them. Sooo many docs rolled their eyes when I'd go back to the ER for another one.....I AM a klutz!!!
