I rolled my ankle about a month ago. When it first happened it hurt for a minute and that was it. I woke up the following morning and had quite a bit of pain when I got out of bed and have been limping since. The pain is located in one spot on my foot (no ankle pain) near the ankle joint. There is no bruising and very slight swelling over the site of pain. I don't have pain while sitting and if I do it's usually pretty minimal, but when I start walking, there is quite a bit of pain, and is much worse by the end of the day. I do have some pain in my arch, but not bad. I have a history of plantar fasciitis in the same foot so I'm wondering if the injury may have affected that at all?
I'm not asking for an internet diagnosis, but just wondering if my symptoms are similar to a sprain or a possible fracture? I am calling my doctor tomorrow....I think waiting for an improvement for a month is reasonable.
Has anyone had anything similar to this? What was your outcome? I have a 2 year old and am terrified of ending up on crutches. I've already dealt with that when I had hip surgery and don't want to experience that again!
