I went outside to play with our big puppy. She got underneath me while running at full speed. I landed on my ankle instead of my foot and face-planted.
It hurts so much! The pain is shooting into my foot from my ankle and hurts to touch or move.
I iced it for 20 minutes, and am trying to move it around a bit. Man does it hurt!
Ice good for recent injuries.
Feel better soon!
@dreamer54 is spot on- ice that wound!
I’m icing it on and off, 20 minutes at a time. It hurts so much!
Hope you feel better soon.
if you can move it at all it’s not broke but you probably sprained it really bad…been a couple decades since I sprained my ankles…used to do it all the time, then i got careful…be careful !
This is not accurate. It’s considered common folklore. Here’s an article about it
How to Identify a Broken Ankle | FootCareMD.
@jukebox , I had immediate severe pain and swelling. It is very painful to set my foot on the ground and to touch the ankle.
I took a hydrocodone 10-325 pill, and it still hurts very badly. Something is wrong. It’s either a bad sprain or a break. Not sure which yet.
If the swelling is the same or worse in the morning I’m going to the urgent care facility by my house to get it examined.
In the meantime, I’m elevating and icing

Ok. So it popped today like the joint had been dislocated and popped back in. I’ve now got some relief. Still very painful to move or touch though. Since it no longer feels dislocated, I’ve decided not to get an X-ray . I’ve been elevating, icing and while not icing I have it wrapped.
It’s good that you try to reduce movement by wrapping
Hopefully you’ll start feeling much better now
Let the healing process begin!
I’m glad you are feeling a bit better, and I’m hoping for quick and easy healing for you.

I spoke too soon. I stepped on the ground while using a cane and felt sudden horrible pain.
Now it’s swelling like crazy and turning black and blue
My family has convinced me to go in for a X-ray in the morning
I think an x ray would be a good idea at this point, yes
@jukebox I made an appointment at my local urgent care for the morning. It’ll be ok
Ow, sounds painful, I’m sorry
@Twialine . It does hurt.
