How to treat a swollen ankle bone?

43 y, 5 4 , 123 lbs. Hit my ankle bone hard on dresser corner, now swollen and super painful, can t walk on it, it s not broken, just really stiff to bend - have MS, and crushed bone injury on left leg, no ankle. hence a bit concerned I can t use good leg to stand - medication I can take? i m on wellbutrin/Zoloft for anxiety/depression + test drug for MS. Can I take aspirin? 500 mg? 1000 mg? Percocet? I have them both. Although I will bare the pain if it means there would be an interaction with the wellbrutrin/zolft. Kindly advise.

hi,

you need to take hot water fermentation. as it will get relaxation to the muscles and sooth it. post that try performing some ankle toe movements by keeping it over the pillow. as any injury will first lead to inflammation of the muscle and then the swelling. so using a bot water will create a vasodilation and then doing some simple exercises will help ease to drain out the metabolic waste too.hope this helps

thank you
