I hurt myself years ago and stretched ligaments in my right ankle along with breaking it. I rolled my right ankle jogging yesterday. I think it is severely stretched ligaments again. What do u think?

Could be ligaments again. Are you able to walk at all? Can you pinch your toes and feel them? Do you have any motor control of your foot?

I think you should put that foot up. If someone in my home had a foot that looked like that I would schedule an appt with the doctor.

Take care of yourself!

Amen to the RICE. I did that after I broke my ankle and my wrist. Get the swelling down gets the pain down.

I can walk on it. Somewhat cautiously, but it does not hurt when I do so. I can feel my toes and have full movement of them without pain. When I move my foot up and down at the ankle, I have some pain, but not what I would consider bad.

Remember your first aid for strains/sprains

R - rest
I - ice
C - compression
E - elevate

I have been icing about every couple of hours. Elevating some, but I do not to be up for some things, like letting the dog outside, using the rest room, etc....

For what it is worth, I had one ocassion where I would have sworn my foot was broken, it wasn't. On another ocassion it was only near my little toe (but in the body of the foot) that I had some pain. It was broken that time. Spent 6 weeks in a cast. Considering how much a person depends on your feet, why haven't you seen a doctor yet? Go to the doctor.

Looks like a bad sprain similar to what my Mama had one time. I would put a drop of Wintergreen oil on it for pain. That stuff is astoundingly effective on painful joints..muscles ligaments etc. .

Would say if pain is high after 24 hrs and no reduction in swelling you should go to the doctor.

It has been about 37 hours since I injured myself and the swelling has increased.

Amazing you would seek medical advice from posters on a forum. When it’s permanently destroyed, remember to put some wintergreen on it.

If you can’t figure out you should have seen a physician 24 hrs ago, it’s on you.

I had a similar injury many years ago. Turned out to be a bad sprain and I got one of this walking boot things and some meds.
You really ought to go to a urgent care or your PCP for some X-rays.
