Ankle gave way, crunching sound in foot, numbness, difficulty walking, pricking sensation. Treatment?

My ankle gave way to the side and as it did i heard and felt a big crunch in my foot . i got back up and carried on walking, yes i was in pain but a rush of warmth around it numbed the foot, however a few hours later now and its starting to hurt a lot more and i can barely walk. I have also started getting pins and needles in it

Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

It might be soft tissue injury, ligament injury or fracture.

Pins and needle sensation might be due to pressure over nerves.

Without X-ray, it is difficult to differentiate a fracture from others. I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance.

In the interim, ice the affected area and take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin to reduce pain and inflammation. Avoid putting weight and rest well.

Regards.
