ankle/foot injury, no insurance, need advice
I rolled my ankle 2 weeks ago stepping off some metal airline stairs. The bruises around my ankle have faded to a red smear on the inside of ankle and a grayish strip on the outside of my foot.
But my toes and the area below are still black,and blue with lots of other colors.(and dark red dots!) When I wake up in the morning the bruises are faded but as I move around the bruises go back to the darker color.
Also my toes and foot are still swollen. Is this normal? I have been using a ankle brace(looks like a space boot)that I had from a previous injury. The last time I hurt that ankle I had a bone chip in the same area but I don’t remember this much bruising. I have no insurance and am just starting school.
Is this injury worth checking out or should I wait and see?
