Brief Answer:
Need not worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

The sprain in the muscle can result in impulse pain corresponding to every heart beat. There is no risk involved to the heart here. Need not worry. Apply pain killer gels like DICLOFENAC gel over the affected area.

If pain does not subside within a day or two then visit your treating doctor for further management.

Wish you good health.

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?

I twisted my left ankle 16 days ago. On lateral radiographs I have an 8mm long chip fracture of the proximal/dorsal aspect of my navicular bone (fracture line enters the talonavicular joint) that is rotated 90 degrees proximally. The orthopedic surgeon wants to remove it to "prevent arthritis" but all the references I can find online recommend conservative management. I have been staying off of the foot for the past two weeks but the NP put me into a walking air cast boot yesterday and recommended partial weightbearing. My foot is not painful when nonweightbearing but I do feel tingling on the bottom of my foot when I bear a small amount of weight. I also have a lateral collateral ligament sprain. My foot swelling is mild to moderate.

1) Is removal of navicular chip fracture fragments common/indicated?
2) Is walking or immobilization better?
