Tripped going downstairs - A&E with sore ankle? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Last night was going down stairs of a club and as it was dark, I missed the last step, landed hard on the ground and hurt my ankle.

    Woke up today and it's a struggle even walking on it. It's swollen, painful to touch in certain places and if I move it or lean on it in a certain way/angle, it's extremely sore. I've put ice on it and keeping it elevated.

    Is it worth going to A&E to get it checked in case I've done something to it and it's more than just a sprain?
