Thanks for writing in.

Since you are finding difficulty in walking, i would suggest you to take and Xray of your foot/ankle to rule-out any body injuries. Even when Xray is normal, if there is associated swelling at the injured site, it is advisable to give rest to your foot/ankle for atleast 3 weeks either by cast/bandage. Consult your doctor and get examined properly to take appropriate xray and proceed with the treatment.

Till that time, avoid bearing weight in the foot, keep ice pack over painful area, elevate your leg over 2 pillows. If swelling is there keep crepe bandage applied.

Get well soon.
