What causes nausea and dizziness after an ankle sprain?

I just twisted my ankle or sprained it, I m not sure. Immediately after I started feeling nauseous, very dizzy, and sweaty. Why do I feel this way? It comes in waves. I just want to know if it is serious and should go to a doctor. I m 20, female, 5 10 , 185 lbs. Thanks

Hello,

Nausea and dizziness that you are having can be due to dehydration or due to the shock of the sprain. This can be due to gastritis also that gets aggravated during anxiety.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr Praveen Tayal, Orthopaedic Surgeon

I recently rolled my ankle. Immediately following, it was difficult to bear weight, I felt light headed, and my vision started greying out for a few seconds. It then returned and I felt fairly normal and my ankle was slightly sore (but not painful or intolerable). Later that night, it was very sore and hurt to walk. However, the next day it was slightly sore and I did not feel pain while walking. But it was swollen the second day. Should I seek any medical attention since it doesn t currently actively hurt?

I sprained my ankle pretty bad four days ago playing soccer. I have been off of it for a few days and there has been some pain after being on it. Today I started to get a tingly feeling in the ankle and at some points it feels like other parts of my foot and even up my leg. Will it help to ice it and is it bad?

I suffered an ankle sprain 3 weeks ago and its still painful and swollen and my toes tend to go numb. My doctor called with the results from my MRI and said nothing was torn and I just had a severe sprain. She suggested placing me in a cast. What does this mean?
