How to treat ankle injury?

I slammed my ankle against my coffee table a week ago and went to the ER... the ER doc never came and looked at it she only asked where it hurt so she knew where to get x-rays... the girl who took the x-rays just told me to lay my foot down and she took a couple of pictures and left... the doc stuck her head in to telle it wasnt broke. and left the murse came and wrapped it with an ACE bandage and gave me crutches and sent me on my way... now it still hurts i cant put any weight on it and i have to take care of my 10 month old who walks faster than me... the pain has gone from a throbbing pain to i feel like im being stabbed... and i now have a hard knot just under my right ankle bone and the inside of my ankle hurt as well know and it received no trama... my entire foot is stil black and blue

Hello,

As a first line management you can take analgesics like paracetamol or aceclofenac for pain relief.

You can also apply icepacks for faster recovery.

If symptoms persists better to consult an orthopaedician and plan for an MRI.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
