Twisted ankle, weakness, nausea, dizziness, blurred vision, hearing loss, limping while walking. Treatment?

Stepped off curb and twisted my ankle (inward). I had a rush of overwhelming weak/hot/nauseous feeling and thought I was going to pass out. My vision was blurry and I felt dizzy. Also lost hearing in right ear temporarily (it was my left foot ). I don t have any swelling and I can put weight on my foot but I naturally want to limp. Turning it inward is somewhat painful. What do I do and why did my body respond this way?

Thanks for writing to us.
The response of your body was due to the sudden shock of the injury. Since there is a mild pain on weight bearing and turning the foot, a bone injury is likely. You should get an X-ray of the area to confirm.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
