Ankle problem

Banged ankle bone with bed a long time ago. It was painful then and after some time it started paining. whenever i get up from the bed after rest it becomes really painful to walk. The pain persists for around a minute or so and then i dont feel anything hurting me, it becomes normal. Though it pains slightly if i touch that area . However there is no swelling.

Hello. Its recognized as vatakantaka in Ayurveda. Apply pinda taila for 10 mins followed fomentation using heated cloth containing salt or sand. Do it for 10 days. It'll reduce the pain and helps ease the movements.

Your pain may be because of underlying bursal or ligamentous injury. Try applying ice locally over the painful area. Take tab ZERODOL 1 tab twice daily after meals for 3 days and Tab PAN 40mg once daily before breakfast for 3 days. It will help with the pain. It the pain or stiffness continues, you'll need a X-ray of ankle joint (AP and Lateral views) and blood tests for RA factor, Uric acid, CRP, Complete hemogram, Calcium & VitD3. Regards
