Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
I would suggest you to show it to a orthopedic surgeon and get it examined. There can be a hair line fracture or a stress fracture, missed by A&E .I would also recommend you to take Brufen tablet for pain relief. Also apply Diclofenac ointment over foot and compression bandage. Keep your ankle elevated over pillow.
