Ankle Sprain
How to identify sprain from fracture? I twisted my ankle on Saturday and have pain and swelling in my left foot. I can walk to the washroom with the help of right foot and heel of my left as i am unable to put the whole foot on the ground. Had visited a physician and he made me move my toes and rest my foot on the heel which i was able to do and hence he said it would be ok in a couple of days but i can still feel the pain and swelling hasnt reduced much.
