Sprained Ankle


I sprained my ankle after stepping in a hole.
It has been about a week and it is still very sore. Above my ankle I have burning on both in inner and outer sides of my leg.
What could be causing this?
Is this something I need to see a doctor about?
Is there a home remedy I should be doing to aid the healing of my ankle?


  1. You need to have an xray of your ankle. Ice is still very important as is gentle, painfree range of motion/ankle circles for the ankle. Stay off it, ie. crutches, if it hurts too much to walk. even a moderatly sprained ankle can take 4 to 6 weeks to heal.Let me know how it feels in 7 to 10 days. GO HAVE AN XRAY.
