Hello I had an ankle sprain 9 weeks ago..Jun 10, 2016. I went to ER and did an X-ray. The doctor there told me it was just a sprain but he didn't say the severity. For the first 3 weeks, I was unable to walk or stand on foot and there was lot of swellng and pain. After 3 weeks, swelling is gone and pain is still there is certain angles but was able to start walking.
From week 4, I am seeing little improvements and flexibilty and motion of my ankle but still my front side ankle is little swollen and I cant yet stand on one leg(sprained leg). After doing some research I feel I have a ankle athritis as I have symptons very similar to it. My front ankle is always warm, little swollen and there is a pain around it.
Can anyone tel me if ankle sprain can lead to athritis? or is it common to have front ankle swollen even after 9 weeks of sprain. i have litlle stiffness and there is no swelling around(not on foot too) except on the ankle.
