Ankle popped, painful toe. What happened?

Hi, I just have a few questions. Last night as I was on my way down stairs the first step I took down I felt a pop in my left ankle. Between the ankle joint and the talonavicular joint. There was extreme pain following. I am unable to tip top or point my toe without pain. What happened? How could this happen when all I did was walk down stairs? What can I do to help the pain? And stop it from happening again? Very painful.

Thanks for writing to us.
From your description it seems that you have had a muscle cramp inb the area. If there is an increasing swelling and the skin has some discoloration then a bone injury needs to be ruled out after an X-ray. Meanwhile avoid weight bearing on the foot.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL
