Rolled ankle during Taekwondo, heard a noise, now painful. Only swelling, can't walk. What to do ?

Hi. I rolled my ankle during Taekwondo today. I got ice straight on it. I did hear a noise as it rolled and when I tried to stand back on it it was painful. Today I have put ice on it and just generally kept it still. When I have moved I still can t put wait on it and when I stood up to make dinner it started to get pins and needles. There is no bruising that I can see and only some swelling . Should I just continue to keep off of it or should I bother going to the dr tomorrow if I still can t walk?

Welcome to HCM,
This is common twisted injury at ankle.
Due this twisting injury there might be some strain on muscles and ligamental injury with some hematoma formation.
Take some analgesic, anti-inflammatory medicines for 2-3 days.
Apply ice pack 2-3 time a day keeping 10 minutes.
Give resty to the part for quicker healing.
ok and bye.
