Today at 11:30am I was just finishing putting dd in car I stepped back and lost on my footing on the side of the driveway. I immediately felt a snap under my ankle (but not my ankle- along the outside bottom of the foot, muscles I guess?) and hit the ground. the swelling was immediate :(
At 12 I got to work, grabbed some strapping tape, strapped it and then stood at a checkout for 4 hours. I didn't want to obviously but the $80 I earned today is desperately needed for my family.
I came home and fed the animals, cooked dinner, fed and bathed dd and put her to bed. so basically didn't get a chance to sit down til now, 7pm
I just sat down with my foot elevated etc but had to get up to pee and now i can barely put any weight on it :(
I know I should have rested it immediately but I couldn't.
You might want to call your dr or go to the ER sounds like you did some damage that more then likely needs to be treated.

I am pretty clumsy so do roll my ankles reasonably often, so I am used to this. but this different... hard to explain it really.
I am going to keep up the ice, rest and elevation and if it's worse tomorrow or still as bad will go get it checked for sure.
