Hey everyone im 17 years old and went to get on a couch by jumping over the back and the couch fell and crushed my ankle somewhat. It didnt so much twist so i dont think its
sprained but theres an open wound and its bruised along the outside of my right foot and
the bone of my ankle is absolutely killing me. i feel like i cant walk on it flat footed because
well the arch in my foot is really sore and wont just rest fully on the ground. is there a better possibility of it being a fracture and if it is i know its not a huge one but should i go
straight to an orthopedic doctor because i know that my family doctor is just going to tell
me that its a sprain

is there a difference in treating it as a sprain even if it is only a small fracture.
i really could use your guyss help my mom just doesnt understand and thinkss
im over reacting but its excruciating and i work on my feet for almost 7 hourss
a day straight. its only making the bruising and swelling worse.
