I recently tripped off a curb and my foot bent underneath me and I heard/felt a large pop for about 5 second the whole foot was numb and once I could feel it again i couldn't walk at all. I still managed to hobble to work and do a full shift (mostly sat down at desk) when I got home and took my boot off the swelling kicked in and since then it has not stopped swelling. It's day 3 now and even though it's hard to walk I can still manage at a very slow and painful pace. Some people have recommended me going to hospital but I just don't have the time to be wasting time if there is nothing wrong. Also some people say it is just a bad sprain however the swelling has moved from the side of my foot all the way around my ankle and the top of my foot, also it pulses a lot whenever I'm not moving it. Could anybody recommend whether it is worth wasting time at the A&E department or whether there is something I can do to just help the swelling and pain a little?
