Have pain in leg, after injury iced, elevated, x-ray no fracture, pain still remains. Muscle injury?

During a basketball game a large player fell backwards across my outstretched right leg (His upper back impacted my leg) This caused immediate pain midway between my ankle and knee resulting in an inability for my leg to carry my weight. X-rays have shown no fracture to the fibula but I still have a lot of pain when putting weight over my toes. There was no bruising or swelling, is it just a muscular injury or possibly bruised bone? Occurred a week ago, iced and elevated immediately after injury for 24 hours.

Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

X-rays shown no fracture to the fibula, hope even tibia also and no swelling but still lot of pain when putting weight over toes. This suggest mainly muscular injury, may be grade 1-2 sprain. If there is any restriction of movement then aviod those movement for time being. Give rest to the movements as the injured tissue requires time to reunion or heal. If repeated movements that will injure again. Take NSAID with chlorzoxazone. Follow your doctor advise.
Hope I answered your question. Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries.
Wish you good health. Take care.

It seems that you might be having heavy strain and twisting injury on the part.
Continue with ice pack 2-3 times a day.
Take anti-inflammatory medicines for few days.
Give rest to the part.
Ok and take care.
