Sprained ankle on left ankle


Q: 30 male. I sprained my left ankle two days ago. The doctor I saw have me crutches and ibprophen. Told me to stay off the foot for two weeks. Even though some of the swelling has gone down (left side of ankle was stolen to the size of a soft ball) the swelling has moved to the rest of the foot. There is also brusing around the toes and other parts of the foot that is not around the ankle. I am trying to find out if this is normal or I should go back in to see if there might be more of a problem.

Symptoms:  Swelling bruising pain
