Twisted the ankle. Having pain and tingling. IS it normal?

I fell and twisted my ankle earlier today (when your foot rolls inward). I am able to walk with a little pain but it seems fine, no bruising or swelling , just my veins are more visible. I iced it, kept it elevated and it felt better, and better walking. I tried wiggling my toes, movement is limited but I can move them a little, the three outside toes very minimal. My concern is tingling I m feeling a few hours after the fact. It seems to go up my foot to my knee . I don t recall having this in past sprains. It s tingling like when your your leg is falling asleep. Is this normal? The foot looks ok otherwise. I ve had a few sprains before and had worse, swelling, bruising, unable to walk without cane, etc so I wasn t too worried about this one till the tingling started. Thank you.

Thanks for writing to us.
The tingling you are having is likely to be due to a nerve involvement in the area. This is usually temporary and subsides once the local swelling decreases. You can use a crepe bandage to provide a good support to the injured area.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
