Should I go to the Drs? Ankle Sprain Watch

    So 3 1/2 weeks ago, I rolled my ankle in very high heels and got a big bruise on my foot, alongside lots of pain. I continued to walk on it for two days after that, as I found it somewhat manageable with ibuprofen. Since then, it has healed slightly - I can walk without pain mostly, however when I stretch my foot at all or manipulate it in any way, I get intense pain where the bruise was and have to stop.

    Is this normal for an ankle sprain? I don't know if going to the Drs is pointless as I can walk on it alright.

    Yes it's normal - the bruise would be overlying the tissue damage to the ankle.

    You could still see the doctor or self-refer to NHS physio if you have such a service locally - ultimately physio is what will get you over it.
