Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
I am Dr Wadia and I am an Orthopaedic Surgeon. I will try my best to answer your questions today.
I just need some more information please if that's OK.
May I ask how old you are?
Did you have an injury to your foot before the symptoms started, a twisting of your ankle going under you?
Are you able to put weight and walk on your left foot?
Do u have any medical problems such as Diabetes?
Ok Thank you for the information.
Please note the call requests are auto generated by the website and not by me.
You said you visited your doctor. Was it your GP or was it to A&E? Did you get an X-ray done on your foot?
Ok. Would it be possible for you to send a picture of your foot/ankle here?
That is quite a significant swelling.
I would suggest that you visit your nearest urgent care centre or A&E to get an X-ray done for your foot to make sure there is no fracture.
Until then, you should try and keep your legs elevated over a pillow and rest.
Apply Ice pack over the swollen part, and
Take Ibuprofen and Paracetamol s after meals upto three times a day
Please let me know if you have any further questions. Hope you feel better soon.
