Luckily there was ice available and I immediately applied it to decrease swelling. I was able to partially apply my weight to the bottom of foot as I limped to car.
At home I elavated the foot and applied an ice pack to the outer area of foot for aboutan hour.
Initially there was some slight swelling at the outer ankle, like in the area where the lateral cuneiform and cuboid bones are located(got names from footmaxx.com site).
But several hours later with no ice I have swelling and hardness above the upper inner arch of the foot.
I plan on buying an ankle brace, but until then would it be okay to wrap the ankle with an ace bandage?
Unfortunately, I don't currently have insurance so unless I go to an ER I won't get seen. I don't feel that it is broken since I can point my toes outward in the foot as well as inward toward myself(although a little tight there).
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thank you, Jan.
