Hi, I can understand your condition in this lockdown. Ankle twist leads to pain and swelling, it may be because of : 1) soft tissue injury like ligament, around the bones (most common) 2) minor fracture However, she is able to do her regular work, so chances of fracture is very less. She is also hypertensive and diabetic. On medications, they are controlled.
Next Steps
1) Avoid prolonged standing or walking at present, give rest to the ankle. 2) Ice compression (Barf se sikai). 3) Elevate the ankle. For prescribing drugs and other, I need to know more about her like any previous reports. You can consult me online at Practo, so that full treatment can be done. But till then you can give her Tab. Ultracet three times in a day after food. Best Wishes. #SayNoToPain
