I was walking down a VERY steep driveway on Monday (just two days ago) when I fell and my ankle turned in. It immediately started hurting and swelled up. It wasn't horrible at first. But the more I use it the worse it gets. Now my heel hurts and I have some tingling in the toes and heel that is unnerving.
I've sprained my ankle before... not too long ago actually, but it wasn't this bad, and I was able to treat it at home without any problems. I'm wondering if these are all normal symptoms for a sprained ankle and if I should just wait a bit longer before going into the doctor. I don't want to overreact and go in just have them send me home without helping me at all. I'm also worried because I have a business trip coming up on Saturday and I can't be in complete agony and unable to walk while I'm out of town!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
