I am sitting in an ER. I have deep pain from my ankle to goin. Right side. There is swelling and heat at the ankle. I have absolutely had NO ankle injuries. I have had 2 episodes of tachycardia in the last 24 hrs. The EKG results were normal. The ultrasound showed no clots. Doc is saying that it is probably a bad sprain. I have NOT sprained my ankle.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Burny. It feels like there is a rubber band stretching from the inner ankle to the goin and that it is being stretched to almost snapping. The pain burns and is sharp. The area of the ankle has the most pain and is also swollen but the ankle bones do not hurt
Neurologist: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 3 years ago
I think its a nerve issue. It could be a nerve in your back
This often presents with just leg pain.
Sciatica for example. Suggest this to the ER docs
