I sprained my ankle about 2 weeks ago and went to the doc. They did x-rays then, gave me a brace and crutches and said stay off it for a week, then bear light weight...I did all that and then made an "executive" decision that I was good and didn't need the crutches anymore...by the end of the day, I had pain going up into my calf and some pain around my foot (other side than the sprained side). I still have some very dark swelling under the site where I originally hurt it...I'm not sure if I need to go back or give it more time to heal? Any input is appreciated!! Thanks!
