IIs It Okay If My Sprained Ankle Has Been Swollen for 5 weeks???
I sprained my ankle about 5 weeks ago and the first 2 days i could barely walk, about the 2nd week i could walk normal but it still kind of hurt, and now 5 weeks have passed and my ankle has been swollen, not like in the beggining but its still sort of swollen.
Should i put ice or do you recomend something.

go to the doctor. either you keep aggitating it or you did a little more than sprain it.

its probably just normal when i broke my bone it stayed quite swollen for some time, the main concern is if it swells and you get pins and needles or it goes a blueish colour if this happens you should definetly go to the doctor immediatly

have it checked out it could be fractured.

Sounds like more than just a sprain. Go see your doctor asap.


Simple answer: Yes.

Explanation: "I sprained my ankle about 5 weeks ago and the first 2 days i could barely walk, about the 2nd week i could walk normal but it still kind of hurt"

From that sentence,it is clear that you used your ankle too much before it was ready.

Sprains (especially of the ankle),and especially if they aren't properly treated can take ages to heal.Generally sprains will heal in 2-6 weeks,but can take up to a year depending on the severity and treatment.

You should be following RICE:

Rest (don't walk on it more than necessary)
Ice (20 minutes at least 3x a day)
Compression (wear an ACE wrap or ankle brace)
Elevation (at least at hip level,above the heart is better)

If you follow this for a couple of weeks,you should see improvement.If you don't see any improvement,or if you are still worried,go see a doctor and ask for an MRI because you could have unidentified ligament,tendon,or cartilage damage that needs to be treated.
