Sprain or broke? What to do?
I was running through high weed (like an idiot) and put my foot in a hole. It hurt bad. Most pain I can take, but this? Anyway, now it hurts to put weight on it. It is also kinda numb. Is it broke? Sprained? Either way, home remedy? I have no insurance to visit the clinic.

It may just be a sprain or there may be a fracture. The only way to know is to have an x-ray. There may be other ligamentous injury as well. Examination by an Orthopaedic Surgeon is recommended for correct treatment. In the meantime use painkillers, ice packs and elevate the leg. Use a crepe bandage for support.
