Two weeks ago I tripped down a curb and damaged my ankle. It swelled straight away and I went to minor injuries. They xrayed it and said it was a small crack, put me in a boot and sent me on my way. They said I would be contacted by the virtual fracture clinic.
Two days later the virtual clinic rang and said it wasn't broken and gave no further advice.
After waiting for a phone call from my GP all day I went back to minor injuries 3 days later and was told it looked broken. I said the virtual clinic said no, so they took off my boot and said its just a bad sprain.
The pain continued and my foot was very cold so I contacted the virtual clinic after another 3 days to talk to someone. The said I should come in and see them. They looked at it, said it was a bad sprain with pulled ligaments on both sides and that I had chipped a bone but they put a tub I grip on, told me to rest and sent me on my way.
All was going well but 5 days after that the pain is getting worse and it seems more swollen today. I have no idea what else to do now as I'm not sure the GP can help.
Has anyone else had any experience of this? Not sure it should be getting more painful 2 weeks after???
Any help and advice gratefully received!
