Pain in the calf and ankle after an injury. No swelling. Bluish toes. Any fracture chances?

My friend landed in my ancle last week and the first day it hurt all day long. I can take baby steps when I get home from work but in the morning my calf hurts really bad for about a hr. when I wake up it isn t swelled too much but after work it s really swollen. My toes just starte to get black and blue in the last two days. I can t afford to go to a doctor and I hope I didn t break anything.

I went through your injury and complaints. You need an emergency treatment. You may have a fracture. Because of edema (swelling) above the vascular supply to the lower region is affected (black and blue color of the toes). The complaints you have may be without fracture but needs an emergency treatment like X-Ray, Complete rest, Foot end elevation, Antibiotic, Anti inflammatory, assessment of vascular supply and treatment accordingly.
Best wishes
