A few hours ago I was out cutting the grass, with a push mower, and a rock kicked out and hit my ankle. Omg, the pain was unbelievable! It felt like I'd been shot. I couldn't feel my foot and it was tingling bad. My ankle instantly swelled and bruised. I can't bend my ankle at all and it hurts so bad when I try to put weight on it. I have it elevated right now and the pain is making me sick. Dh wants to wait and see if the pain subsides in a couple of days before I have my dr look at it. I don't think I can last a couple of days, the pain is terrible! I hope it is only a sprain and gets better in a couple of days.
When the rock hit my ankle it instantly went numb so I didn't feel it pop or snap. Just a lot of tingling. There is a puncture wound of my ankle but it could be from where the rock hit.
Would you wait it out or have it checked out first thing in the morning?
