Is it normal to have stabbing pain after spraining my ankle?

I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago, today. I got xrays done and they say no fracture. I did the RICE treatment and when I felt ready, i did moderate excercise at the gym, with an ankle brace. I am getting stabbing pains in my ankle, and in the middle of the night, I get sharp pains. Is this normal? I am able to walk on it with minor pains.

Hello,

Your syndrome seem to be related to the sprain. I suggest using anti-inflammatory medications such as Ibuprofen to relieve the pain.

I also suggest using cold compresses for local applications. I recommend continuing using the brace to prevent further damage and rest.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
