coming out e.g.toes! I cannot put foot down without extreme pain

as there appears to be a sudden rsh of blood to foot Could I have

burst a blood vessel? Must get improvement as holiday is looming.

I keep leg elevated as much as possible. Can you help me. I am

living on painkillers

    Would go and get this checked out by a doctor, to give you peace of mind. Try ice packs may help with the pain.

    Dear Jennifer

    It's early days yet.  This forum is really helpful and encouraging (and sometimes funny)  don't let your injury get you down.  Set yourself a target everyday, even if it's something small.  Keep pushing yourself.  Yes it hurts but sharing experiences really helps

      Dr sending me for 2nd Xray nust to make sure nothing

      was missed. I hve had lots of boad beans on my ankle

      but not much help.. Sick of eating painkillers! It will be

      2 weeks on saturday since the fall. Suppose it is early

      days. Dr said better to break your ankle than to sprain

      it as foot goes in plaster cast or similar and recovery

      is quicker! Watch this space!

    Don't waste any time Jennifer.

    Get to A&E for an X ray

    The sooner you get it diagnosed the quicker treatment can start and recovery for your holidays.

    Good luck
