Ankle popping after falling down stairs, hurts to walk, swelling, bruising, tender to touch

Hi fell down the stairs, twisted my ankle and heard a loud pop. It happened this morning and hurt very badly for a fee minutes but then I was able to walk with little pain. Now it hurts a lot to walk especially waking down stairs. There is no swelling or bruising though if I push on the area where it hurts it is extremely tender to the touch.

Thanks for writing to us.
You have a bone injury in the area of ankle. Avoid bearing weight on the foot at all costs. You need to get an X-ray done for proper treatment .
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
