Patient :I recently sprained my ankle (a week ago). The emergency doctor said it was not broken, so for me to put ice on it, keep elevated. I have been doing that but now, the swelling is getting worse, I now have a tingling sensation in my foot, my foot feel extremely heavy and I have red/purple marks along both sides of my foot. I am not sure what to do.
