Today I twisted my ankle skim boarding at the beach
Patient :Today I twisted my ankle skim boarding at the beach. I stepped off the board into a hole and twisted my ankle and felt a pop. Initially it was extremely painful. I was eventually able to get to my feet and with help walk back to my room. I can barely walk on it. When I do it is painful. The pain is on the outside of my ankle but also makes my Achilles hurt. There is swelling. Could this be anything worse than a sprain?
