My right ankle is swollen and it's been two weeks!


Q: I'm not exactly sure how long but I'd say about 2 or possibly 3 weeks ago someone cleated me in the ankle. My cleat came off and I kicked the back with the side of my foot not knowing until pain rushed it. I brushed it off and continued. Since then it hurts to bend it backwards, my ankle also is swollen with the bone bruised. People also have been kicking my in the ankle that is swollen. Should I do something? Obviously my team in soccer needs me and didn't think it was that serious.

Symptoms:  Sometimes hurts to walk on
