Sprained ankle or break??
Asked Apr 14, 2011, 07:54 PM
I twisted my ankle a week ago and there is still pain and swelling. I have continued to run in track and have done some hurdles as well. I have tried to do the least amount of running but I still have ran on it. There is a looseness feeling in the ankle and pain when pressure is put on it. There is also mild pain when its not moving. I can't decide if it is just a sprain or if I should see a doctor. I have twisted the ankle before several times, and sprained it once before. Also when I was younger it was broken (when I was like 10, now I'm 17). I have iced it a lot but the swelling has not gone down much. It hurts after walking a lot. There are some sharp pains in specific parts of the ankle/foot. Not sure which it could be... sprain or break??
