Brief Answer:
Could be quadriceps sprain.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, I am Dr Gopal Goel , Orthopedic Surgeon.
By the description , it appears that you have sprained quadriceps tendon( Thigh muscle).
I suggest take pain killers, Ice pack locally at least 3-4 times a day.
If you don't feel relieved by 50% in 5 days then go for an X ray.
Thanx for the question. Please feel free to ask any other question.

Several days ago I turned my right ankle when I stepped in a hole. It rolled to the outside. Some pain but not really bad. No swelling, no discoloration. I have had a sprained ankle and it is not like that. It does not hurt at all when I am sitting or laying down. When I walk more than 15-20 steps it hurts. The first few steps don't hurt but the last 2 or three are really bad. What is this?

I badly sprained my ankle on Sunday. It had an X-ray and he said it wasn't broken. I have grade 2 ligament damage. I have been trying to exercise it as advised. Everytime I walk on it, I feel sick. My gate is improving slowly but is still very limited. I have bruising and swelling all over my foot and ankle but also halfway up my shin. Is feeling so sick normal?
